Opening Night Screening: The Unorthodox

When printer Yakov Cohen’s daughter is expelled from an Ashkenazi high school, he decides to take matters into his own hands. With nothing but his passion and two friends to back him, Cohen forms the ethnic political party known today as “Shas” as a way to empower all Sephardic Jews. Don’t miss this poignant, often comic and often nostalgic, recounting of Shas’ unbelievable forming story. More information at http://iffphila.com/movie/the-unorthodox/
