Jewish Culture and Society

Join Associate Professor Emanuel Rota for a discussion of A Starry Sky Above The Roman Ghetto, one of the films featured in the CUJF 2021 Jewish Film Festival. 


“Past and present meet upon the discovery of an old, mysterious photograph that will end up tying together Christian and Jewish students in search of the truth. Trying to unravel the mystery behind the portrait, the boys embark on a journey through a night of horror that cannot be forgotten: the raid of the Roman Ghetto.

Retracing these painful events will give them the chance to take a collective stance towards personal, existential, and cultural commitment. ”
