This Oscar-nominated classic of British-Jewish cinema is 20 years old this year. Set amid the anti-Jewish riots of 1911, and starring Maureen Lipman, Ioan Gruffudd and Nia Roberts, Solomon and Gaenor tells the story of a young Orthodox-Jewish man in South Wales who falls in love with a local girl. Will their love survive their respective communities’ prejudice and fear? A passionate, exquisitely shot and deeply-emotional film.
The film is screening as part of the UK Jewish Film Festival 2019 touring programme.
