Abstract:

"The Believer relates the disturbing and provocative story of a Jewish Nazi from Brooklyn. Filmmaker Henry Bean was inspired by an actual case to write an original script exploring issues close to his own Judaism - and then to direct what has become an award-winning film. Everywhere The Believer has been shown it has provoked passionate debate about fundamental assumptions of faith, belief, and ethnic identity. The Believer: Confronting Jewish Self-Hatred is intended to provide a context for the discussion sparked by this controversial film, with Screenplay Notes by Henry Bean, as well as additional commentaries by Beth Pinsker (editor-in-chief of The Independent), David Kraemer (Professor of Talmud and Rabbinics at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America), and Sander Gilman (Professor of the Liberal Arts and Medicine at the University of Illinois at Chicago)."--Jacket.
