The Film Maker and the Rabbi is Episode 71 of A Dash of Drash.
Acclaimed writer and director Jonathan Glazer is Rabbi Marc’s oldest friend and for years, they have enjoyed conversations on where art, religion, spirituality and culture meet and diverge. They met at JW3, London’s Jewish Community and Arts Centre, and talked for a few hours. On the Jewish calendar, we find ourselves in a period of three weeks of mourning as we approach Tisha b’Av, commemorating the destruction of two Temples in Jerusalem and other catastrophes. Among their discussions, Jonathan and Marc talk about destruction, loss and human brutality through the lens of Jonathan’s new film project on Auschwitz and our troubling times.
Thanks for listening with a generous heart and sharing with others!
