Social issue documentary films that build cross cultural bridges

A timely new feature-length documentary about the historic 2003 Immigrant Workers Freedom Ride that sparked the birth of the new Civil Rights Movement for immigrant workers in the U.S. and the ongoing fight to fix the broken immigration system.​ 

Shalom Ireland is a one-hour documentary about Ireland's remarkable, yet little known Jewish community.  The one hour film chronicles the history of Irish Jewry while celebrating the unique culture created by blending Irish and Jewish traditions.  From gun running for the Irish Republican Army during Ireland's War of Independence to smuggling fellow Jews escaping from the Holocaust into Palestine, Shalom Ireland tells the untold story of how Irish Jews participated in the creation and development of both Ireland and Israel.  The film aired on RTÉ, Ireland's national public broadcaster, and has screened at more than a hundred film festivals, community centers, universities and synagogues around the world.
