This edition: Yidl in the Middle: Growing up Jewish in Iowa
(1998, 58 min., color, documentary) Dir.: Marlene Booth, New Day Films. Filmmaker Marlene Booth examines “the negotiated identity” of Jews in small-town America who adapt their behavior to accommodate to local norms. Through home movies, conversations with old friends and footage of Marlene’s 30th high school reunion, we witness the forging of an identity composed of conflicting parts.
