WORLD PREMIERE It’s an insidious, centuries-old conspiracy theory that continues to rear its ugly head today: Jews have a secret international plot to control the world. How do such preposterous ideas get started, and why do they flourish? Filmmaker Maxim Pozdorovkin orchestrates bold, striking animation and exceptionally talented voice artists to walk us through almost 250 years of anti-Semitic ideology, focusing on how times of uncertainty give rise to anxieties in marginalized populations, and how three Jewish family dynasties came to bear the brunt of irrational scapegoating. - Jaie Laplante

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Maxim Pozdorovkin, Joe Bender, Dan Cogan, Allison Stern, Caroline Hirsch, director of animation Dash Bough, editor Matvey Kulakov

All in-person screening venues provide hearing impaired listening devices upon request with venue management.
