'100 Faces' in the Jewish Community
Tuesday 25 August, 20:00
100 Faces was made in 2018 by film maker and composer, Benjamin Till, who - upon discovering that he was Jewish (a fact which had been kept from him and his mother by his maternal Grandmother) - set about trying to find one British Jewish person born every year from 1918 to 2017.

His odyssey took him from London to Northampton, Leeds and Manchester and then to Tel Aviv to record the Israel Camerata orchestra. Each person in the film is asked to say (or sing) what being Jewish means to them, and the end product is an eccentric, moving, funny, life-affirming and very British short film. Rabbis and chazans rub shoulders with holocaust survivors, kinder transportees and people who fought at Cable Street. And watch out for a few very famous faces!

Benjamin’s journey from conception to completion was packed with jeopardy. One of his 100 faces sadly died a week before filming and another had a stroke whilst filming was taking place. Benjamin describes the film, which won gold at the Robinson’s International Film Competition, as one of his greatest achievements.
BAFTA-nominated composer and director, Benjamin Till will answer questions after the film. For Zoom details please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
