Authors Yehuda Mirsky and Rabbi Shai Held contrast and compare two of Judaism's most influential 20th century rabbinic thinkers. Brandeis University's Mirsky literally wrote the book on Rav Abraham Isaac Kook, the founding theologian of religious Zionism whose ideas helped shaped Israeli Judaism, titled Mystic in a Time of Revolution, while Rabbi Held is an expert on Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, the influential American scholar, philosopher and social justice activist who helped develop modern bible scholarship, including ethics and mysticism. Held's work on Heschel is subtitled, The Call of Transcendence. Learn More

A very well-documented and moving portrait of a little-known giant of cinema history. The documentary included adulatory as well as unfavorable details about Bernard Natan. Rather than focusing exclusively on boring interviews with contemporary figures, the film used newsreel footage and actual films to complete the portrait, including rare scenes from the notorious pornographic films that Natan was accused of appearing in. Those interviews that were included were very touching, especially those with Natan's granddaughters.
