The 23rd JCC Sonoma County Jewish Film Festival has a great selection of films for you.
The festival concludes with Sammy Davis Jr.: I’ve Gotta Be Me.
Sammy Davis Jr. tap danced through life on a knife edge, trying to balance personal ideals versus cultural and societal pressures. He was Black, Jewish and mainstream; he was gifted, controversial and iconic. “I’ve Gotta Be Me” brings clips from his extraordinary performances, never-before-seen photographs from his private collection, and new interviews with friends and contemporaries – Billy Crystal, Jerry Lewis, Whoopi Goldberg, and others – to explore the life and art of this multi-faceted and complex entertainer. Winner of 7 audience awards for best Documentary.
