A Father’s Kaddish

February 11 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

A week after his son’s death, Steve Branfman, a potter and teacher, went to his studio and made a Japanese-style tea bowl. He did the same each day for a year, performing his own personal Kaddish. After nine years, Steve fired the 365 bowls and exhibited them. A potent and moving film about the universality of loss, mourning, and rebuilding a life, told through the unique experience of art.

Following the screening of the film (30 minutes), join Steven Branfman and director/producer, Jen Kaplan for a live Q&A.

The US Premiere of this film took place at the recent Boston Jewish Film Festival 2020.
