Another great short film on the Sundance site is Tiffany Shlain's "The Tribe," a clever history of the Jews and the creator of the Barbie doll - a Jew, who knew? The website for the film includes something called "Web Talmud," a new-fangled way of looking this internet thing. The film is also narrated by Peter Coyote who I will forever love for his portrayal of a Moshe Dayan-type in the "Hebrew Hammer" and for his dead-on Spielberg making a Yiddish version of The Merchant of Venicee in France in "Le Grand Role." I'm hoping we can coax him into doing something for our next independent low budget Jewtastic movie. Seems that he likes to be a part of those projects.
