Discussion with Anna Winger, producer and co-writer of the Netflix series “Unorthodox”

Anna Winger, producer and co-writer of the 4-part miniseries “Unorthodox,” joins moderators Holly Rosen Fink and Jacques Steinberg to discuss the series and its impact on the conversation about Judaism around the world. This program is brought to you by WJC’s World Jewry Committee.

 

A few references from our discussion:

Winger discusses the “2 grandmothers movie,” Oma & Bella. Oma & Bella is an intimate glimpse into the world of Regina Karolinski (Oma) and Bella Katz, two friends who live together in Berlin. Having survived the Holocaust and then stayed in Germany after the war, it is the food they cook together that they remember their childhoods, maintain a bond to each other and answer questions of heritage, memory, and identity.
