American Birthright

American Birthright is a feature-length documentary that follows an Israeli-American's grapple with religion, love, and identity after her younger sister marries outside the faith. Becky journeys to carve out her identity as an Israeli immigrant in Los Angeles by consulting a handful of Rabbis, religious experts, mentors, and family around her initial question, "should I marry Jewish?". What she finds changes her initial question to "why be Jewish?" & shifts the very course of her life. AB isn't a solely Jewish story — Becky gives an authentic voice to those struggling to fit in, find their purpose and identity, and own their individuality in a world that begs assimilation.

About Triad Jewish Film Festival

The annual Triad Jewish Film Festival (TJFF) presents the best and brightest cinematic moments from Israeli and Jewish cinema, and affords movie-goers the opportunity to see Jewish films that are not readily available in theaters. Our films allow patrons the opportunity to unpack the various scintillating yet often challenging themes that surface as part of the TJFF viewing experience. The high quality of the films and the Jewish themes build community — and lift the human experience in a way no other medium does. Join us for our film festival, both virtual and in person from January 27, 2022 through February 6, 2022.
