Description

How does a gay, former-Mormon, cancer-survivor who converted to Judaism at the age of 34 prepare for his bar mitzvah? Latter Day Jew follows Comedian H. Alan Scott, known for his appearances on Ellen and The Jimmy Kimmel Show, as he talks with friends and Jewish comedians (including Judy Gold), takes a trip to Israel, and, finally, deals with the big questions: How did his cancer scare affect his path to Judaism and how will becoming a Jew affect his relationship with his Mormon family in Missouri? 

 

11/12 Screening followed by a conversation with Comedian/Protagonist H. Alan Scott and Producer Kelly Woyan.
