In partnership with and sponsored by the American Romanian Cultural Society for the Romanian Film Festival, Temple Beth Am is pleased to present the documentary Aliyah DaDa, which is about the Jewish people in Romania and their several migrations towards Israel, across history and changing political frames — everything presented in a self-proclaimed Dadaist style. Aliyah DaDa is a witty and frank exploration of Jewish Romanians’ immigration to the Holy Land over the last 130 years. After the screening, stay for a special Q&A with the film's director - renowned Romanian producer Oana Giurgiu (Child’s Pose, Of Snails and Men) - to discuss her directorial debut.
