This humorous and intimate account of the Jewish immigrants who arrived in England – thinking that they’d arrived in America – charts their rags to riches story from the ghettos of Eastern Europe to the self-made empires of Marks & Spencer, Burton’s Clothing and countless more.

Combining drama with documentary, a 19th Century Russian Jew searched the City of Leeds for a people that have since moved on. Having moved up the social ladder and out of the city slums, younger generations of Leeds Jews moved away, married out and forgot where they came from.

The screening will be followed by a Q & A with director Simon Glass.

Part of the MILIM festival, including a small exhibtion of the Jewish diaspora in Leeds.
