2003 USA Documentary dir: Brian Bain. 59 min. 
Travelling in a vintage Cadillac, Brian Bain, a third generation Jew from New Orleans, sets out on a 4200-mile road trip though the American South. The film is a funny, anecdotal and poignant look at a young Jewish man’s struggle and search for his own Southern Jewish identity. Travelling through delta flatlands, small towns in Mississippi, suburban subdivisions, Texas ranches, and sprawling Sunbelt metropolises, he uncovers the unique and diverse history of Southern US Jews.
Before this documentary we will show a short film too.
