NICHT GANZ KOSHER

DOCUMENTARY BY RUTH OLSHAN

A comic-tragic exploration of Jewish rituals of purity.
In a figurative sense, “kosher” means “pure”. Ruth Olshan applies the Jewish tradition of examining the purity of things to her own family history : from kosher meals, ritual personal hygiene, sex that conforms to the rules on up to the filmmaker’s “not quite kosher” Jewish identity. It’s a documentary journey into the author’s Eastern European past and the current Jewish life in Germany – in search of a kosher label for herself.
