Oys and Joys: Narrative Shorts

Shaina Feinberg, director of We Should Eat and Jonah Weinstein, director of The Eighth Day are expected to attend

Contentious bris planning, overbearing parents of all stripes, extreme sauna endurance, late in life love, and friendship forged in grief are some of the highs and lows of Jewish life captured in this collection of narrative short films. Spanning vast emotional terrain, this collection captures microcosmic pieces of the multifaceted Jewish experience. Come prepared to laugh, cry, and roll your eyes as these shorts take you through peaks and valleys of emotion, tension, and relief. Featuring familiar faces like that of Milana Vayntrub, Jackie Hoffman, and Alysia Reiner, you will find performances that encompass both riotous comedy and emotional depth. Operating in a variety of modes from mockumentary to straight drama to clamorous comedy, there are offerings that appeal to all. Bittersweetness abounds as the full range from oy to joy is explored.
