TCJFF: ‘From Cairo to the Cloud’

Presented as part of the 25th Annual Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival.

From Cairo to the Cloud – The World of the Cairo Geniza tells the story of an astonishing collection of ancient manuscripts hidden for centuries in a Cairo synagogue and their remarkable odyssey to the modern world.

The Cairo Geniza revolutionized our understanding of Jewish history and illuminated a thousand years of vibrant Jewish life in the heart of the Islamic world. An accidental archive of more than half a million documents, the Cairo Geniza reveals the richness of Judeo-Arabic culture and reflects periods of relative religious co-existence nearly unimaginable today.

Followed by a Q+A with director Michelle Paymar.

Directed by Michelle Paymar | 2018 | Documentary | English | 92 minutes
