The story of the Baghdadi Jews of Calcutta takes a trajectory very different from those of persecution and victimization we all have grown up watching moives about. The Jewish community of Calcutta was small but influential and prosperous, “a diaspora of hope.” Today just a handful of those Jews are left. This virtual event will feature the documentary Dwelling in Travelling along with director Subha Das Mollick and Jael Silliman, author of Jewish Protraits, Indian Frames.
This program is being presented in partnership with the Film and Media Studies Program, the Jack Buncher Endowed Chair in Jewish Studies in the Department of History at Carnegie Mellon University, Screenshot: Asia at the Asian Studies Center, and Classrooms without Borders.
