Delightful shortie dealing with Jewish identity issues
"Hannah Cohen's Holy Communion" (2012 release from the UK; 13 min.) finds a little Jewish girl named Hannah running into a friend of hers who happens to have her Holy Communion that day. "You get to dress up like a princess and get lots of presents, it's the best day ever!" tells her friend. That convinces Hannah that she needs to partake in that as well... To tell you more might spoil your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.
Couple of comments: this a delightful shortie dealing with Jewish identity issues, in a lighthearted yet effective way. How can a 7 yr. old girl resist the glamor and appeal of "the best day ever"? I recently saw this at the 2017 Jewish & Israeli Film Festival here in Cincinnati. No idea why a movie from 2012 shows up 5 years later, but better late than never I suppose. The audience absolutely loved this movie, laughing at all the right times, and giving an applause at the end of it. If you have a chance to see "Hannah Cohen's Holy Communion", do not miss it!
