iW NEWS | "Sweet Mud" and "Making Trouble" Bookend 27th SF Jewish Film Fest

The largest and oldest festival of its kind, the 27th San Francisco Jewish Film Festival will run July 19 – 26 at the Castro Theatre, opening with Israeli filmmaker Dror Shaul‘s “Sweet Mud.” The film, according to organizers, “peels back the romantic mythology surrounding communal life on a kibbutz to tell a more personal, poignant story of thwarted love, adolescent awakening and human longings and failings.” Rachel Talbot‘s comedy “Making Trouble” will close the event. The documentary explores six legendary American Jewish women comics whose comedy “defied cultural expectations and changed the rules of humor” including Molly Picon, Fanny Brice, Sophie Tucker, Joan Rivers, Wendy Wasserstein and Gilda Radner.
