Filmmaker Interviews

The filmmakers talk about 'Blacks and Jews' and describe how they wanted to highlight the differing voices in both communities when it came to racial conflicts.


From death on the streets of Crown Heights to director Steven Spielberg's controversial visit to a predominantly black high school in East Oakland, the film resists simple analysis and treads provocatively on the fault lines of racial coalition and conflict.
