Hebrew Center Film
At Home in Utopia, a documentary by Michal Goldman., screens Sunday, June 29, at 7:30 p.m. at the Hebrew Center in Vineyard Haven.
As the Filmmakers Collaborative tells it, this film set in the mid-1920s tells of the thousands of Jewish immigrant garment factory workers managed to catapult themselves out of urban ghettos by pooling their resources and building four cooperatively owned and run apartment complexes in the Bronx.
A second film is on the program: Under the Roller Coaster is a short documentary, directed by Lila Place. The Thunderbolt Roller Coaster of Coney Island was an icon to many, but to Mae Timpano it was home.
Admission is $10. The program is open to the public.For details, see online mvhc.us/summer_institute.
