LES RACINES DE L’EAU THE ROOTS OF WATER

Belgium | 2021 | 19 min. | Documentary

Synopsis
Two women—one Ashkenazi Jew from Poland and one Sephardic Jew from Algeria—meet in Brussels with the same quest: to find out what their Jewish identity means to them. Their biggest desire is to undergo the water ritual called Mikveh. But they are not welcome in a bath house being neither married nor orthodox. Nonetheless, they try to claim their heritage on a road trip and on their own Judaism.
