Billie Holiday’s heartbreaking 1939 rendition of Strange Fruit became a powerful emblem for African Americans in their long civil rights struggle. What is less known is that the song, with its stark depiction of the lynching of Blacks in the American South, was written by a Jewish schoolteacher from the Bronx named Abel Meeropol. Joel Katz’s documentary paints a powerful portrait of the songwriter and those volatile times, testifying to the unique power of music to unite people and inspire change.

 

A moderated panel will follow the screening

Presented by the Toronto Jewish Film Society

Sunday, October 19 - 4:00 pm and 7:30 pm

 

Mexico / USA, 2007, Alejandro Springall director, 98 minutes

 

Outrageousness abounds as the family of the late Moishe prepare to sit shivah for him. Two angels, one symbolizing light and one darkness and invisible to all, observe the ceremony and bet on who will accompany Moishe’s soul to the afterlife. Meanwhile, his squabbling family has their own issues to deal with even as the man in charge of keeping the shivah kosher prepares to rip them off financially. An unusual comedy about Mexican Jewry, My Mexican Shivah is a spicy treat.
