Southampton Jewish Film Fest: HAG. – The Story of the Hasidic Actors’ Guild

Jul 23 7:30pm


“Pay Us for Payos” is a serio-comic hybrid of fact and fiction chronicling the life of Yisrael “Izzi” Lifschutz. He has acted in and/or consulted on such Hollywood films as The Chosen, Stranger Among Us and the independent classic Pi (which he also co-produced). This outrageously funny mockumentary is a survey of Jewish visibility in cinema and fictionalized history replete with archival “behind the scenes” footage, interviews, and staged scenes . It also goes beyond its humor to speak to contemporary Jewish experience. Lifshutz, while “HAGing” the spotlight boasts, I’m so animated (an actor) they call me the kosher ham.
