Just days before Blumenthal screens in Boston, I will be flying to London for the UK Jewish Film Festival. This festival is unique in that it screens not just in London, but throughout the country. In addition to its two main screenings in the capital, Blumenthal will screen in Leeds and Liverpool. I'll be attending one of the London screenings on November 6th at the Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley. On a personal note, I have a ton of family in this part of London, many of whom were early supporters of Blumenthal's Kickstarter campaign. I'm excited to be able to share the film with them on the big screen!
There will be a Q and A after the screening with me and the late Harold Blumenthal aka the live Brian Cox CBE. Fun fact: "CBE" means that Brian is a "Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire". After several years of Commanders complaining to the Queen that it took far too long to write their names, they came up with "CBE".

I think the British take on the synopsis for the film is by far the best I've read. If you are in London or anywhere near London, come and see me and Brian Cox at the Phoenix on Wednesday, November 6th!
