Miami Premiere

Soul Exodus

Directed by Csaba Bereczki

Hungary | 95 minutes | 2020

Five American-born musicians try to discover their Jewish roots in this deeply emotional story told through Klezmer music. They set out on what might be described as a reverse exodus as they journey from Montreal, pass through New York, Paris, Berlin, Budapest, and Romania, until they finally arrive in Moldova. They are determined to explore their Eastern European roots, discover the origins of their music, and get to know themselves and their Jewishness through the history of their parents and grandparents.

Accompanying the film premiere is a discussion with director Csaba Bereczki and Rabbi Ken Kanter, the Interfaith and Special Projects Coordinator at HUC-JIR. To view the conversation please click here.
