It’s never too early to begin preparing for Pesach! Join artist and curator, Saul Robbins to view and discuss his curatorial project “Projecting Freedom: Cinematic Interpretations of the Haggadah.” This unique project, directed by Rabbi Leon Morris, Founding Director of Skirball Center for Adult Jewish Learning, engaged 11 noteworthy Jewish film and video artists throughout a year of study and discussion, entrusting them to interpret the Haggadah with their own creative style and intent. The resulting short videos correspond to the 15 segments of the Haggadah, interpreting the liturgy, prayers, songs, and rituals that are the narrative basis for the Passover Seder, the traditional ceremonial dinner of the holiday. An online Study Guide will be available, offering interpretations and provocative questions to engage audiences of all ages.
