Doing Jewish: A Story from Ghana
Director: Gabrielle Zilkha

Garbriella Zilkha realized she was a lone Canadian Jew awash in a sea of Christians while volunteering in Africa when the Jewish New Year came along. Surprisingly, she finds a group of practicing Jews in a remote town in Ghana. This engaging and funny documentary explores their history while asking her own big questions about religion.
