Iom Romì at the New York Jewish Film Festival



Iom Romì at the New York Jewish Film Festival

Iom Romì, a short film born within the Rome Lab, will be screened at the New York Jewish Film Festival on January 21 together with the Della Seta home movies. Don’t miss them! The Rome Lab, dedicated to the encounter between Rome and Judaism, will close on January 14th, 2018. Documentation of the virtual installation, research, publications, and lectures will be available through the centro primo Levi website.

“Iom Romì” (A day in Rome) chronicles a day in the life of the contemporary Jewish community of Rome, which for centuries has lived in limbo between persecution and integration. As the only cultural group in the city that can claim an uninterrupted line of descent from the times of the empire, Roman Jews have fostered rituals and traditions that are unique in the world. From dawn to dusk, through the voices of several characters living and working in the historic Ghetto quarter, “Iom Romì” tells the story of a community both fiercely independent and distinctly Roman. By Valerio Ciriaci and Isaac Lipzin.
