Yidl in the Middle looks at growing up "different" in America. In this evocative, entertaining film, filmmaker Marlene Booth probes her Iowa-Jewish roots. Through home movies, period photos, her high school reunion, and current interviews, she examines the complicated process of negotiating identity -- as an American, a Jew, and a woman. A compelling film, sure to provoke discussion.
"This extraordinary film is not only about growing up Jewish in cornbelt America...It is universally relevant to all of us as we find our places in a world of others."
Phil Brown, University Distinguished Professor of Sociology & Health Sciences, Northeastern University
