We hope to present our film BAR MITZVAH MAN as a representation of the modern young adult for all audiences as a fun, entertaining new film. While Jason, his family and the task he sets out for himself all occupy a very Jewish space, the themes and struggles presented in the film will resonate with all audiences. This film is about the ever evolving importance identity in the modern, spiritual and secular worlds. Jason struggles to find his place in both the Jewish world and the modern secular one, this is a struggle that many, Jewish or not, can relate to in these times.

Almost every Jewish holiday can be summed up as “They tried to kill us, they didn’t, let’s eat.” We see this project as a much needed “Let’s Eat” contribution to Jewish media. While it continues to be critical to tell the heavier histories of our peoples’ tribulations, modern Jewish sages like Mel Brooks teach us that it is just as important to be proud and have fun with our Jewish identities. We hope this film will fulfill the latter need as well.

Beyond the need we see this film fulfilling in the Jewish community, we also feel this is an important and timely film that young adults of all ages will come to identify with. BAR MITZVAH MAN explores the universal themes of growing up, letting go or holding on to dreams, modern cultural concerns fitting into ancient traditions, and asks the question of, who am I spiritually now that I’m not a kid anymore? These are questions and struggles that anyone, no matter the age, struggles with.

To this end, our goal is to raise our production funds with the help of these Jewish and non Jewish communities alike, so that we can deliver this film directly to them before releasing the completed film to a wider audience.
