With Lewis Cohen and Peter Stein
In Paris in 2006 a gang calling themselves “The Barbarians” kidnapped a young Jewish cell phone salesman named Ilan Halimi and held him for ransom. Over three weeks of failed negotiations, he was tortured and eventually killed by his captors. The case made international headlines when testimony from gang members revealed that the murder was rooted in the belief that all Jews are rich. Loaded: Jews & Money is a cinematic investigation into this grisly crime, and above all into the age-old cliché that fueled it. Following the screening join us for a Q&A with Emmy® award-winning, Academy Award® nominated filmmaker Lewis Cohen and Peter Stein.
