Five docs score $140,000 in grants

Fund for Jewish Documentary Film announces year's winners

The New York-based Foundation for Jewish Culture has awarded grants totaling $140,000 for five doc projects, including one film about Susan Sontag and another produced by recent Gotham Award winner Laura Poitras (“The Oath”).

Coin comes from the Lynn and Jules Kroll Fund for Jewish Documentary Film, which awarded a grant of between $20,000 and $35,000 to each pic. Money will be used by filmmakers for a number of purposes, ranging from paying for archival footage licensing fees to financing additional shooting.

The 2010 grant recipients are Ra’anan Alexandrowicz’s “The Law in These Parts,” a Poitras-produced look at the military legal system in the occupied territories of the West Bank and Gaza; Nancy D. Kates’ “Regarding Susan Sontag,” a biography of the intellectual with archival footage and interviews; “Joann Sfar Draws From Memory,” Sam Ball’s portrait of the French graphic novelist who also wrote and directed the film “Gainsbourg”;”Numbered,” directed by Dana Doron and Uriel Sinai, about Holocaust survivors and the tattoo each still wears; and “The Hangman,” Netalie Braun and Avigail Sperber’s account of Adolph Eichmann’s executioner Shalom Nagar.

Fund, established in 1996, supports docu projects exploring the Jewish experience.
