American Birthright is the fruit of a seedling planted in October 2015 when Becky Tahel Bordo, a Jewish Israeli millennial working in Hollywood, found herself grappling with her sister's recent engagement to a non-Jew. She felt judgmental of her sister and simultaneously confused about intermarriage. Becky found that many of her friends and colleagues shared her difficulty in synthesizing loyalty to family and culture with the modern ideal of following the heart no matter what. Her seedling sprouted into a full-blown documentary dialogue around love, faith, marriage, religion, and inclusiveness, as she travels the world talking with rabbis, religious experts, mentors, and family. What she ultimately finds changes the very course of her life.

Accompanying the film premiere is a discussion with director Becky Tahel Bordo, executive producer Erin Marie Davis, film subject Gal Andres, and moderator Rabbi Rachel Greengrass. To view the conversation please click here.


The Miami Jewish Film Festival virtual program is made possible with the generous support of Benjamin Nahum and Tamar Roodner.
