Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival presents Raise the Roof


With special guest artists Laura & Rick Brown

5 Audience Best Documentary Awards

Artists Laura and Rick Brown are not Jewish and not Polish, yet they set out to rebuild Gwo┼║dziec, a magnificent wooden 18th century synagogue in Poland that had been destroyed by the Nazis. The Brown’s vision inspired hundreds of people to join them. Using their hands and old tools, they brought Gwo┼║dziec’s history, culture, science, and art back to life. RAISE THE ROOF is the story of the Brown’s dream and an extraordinary journey that uncovers a lost world along the way. The Brown’s will be in attendance at the screening for a discussion and Q and A about this folk art treasure. Tickets available at, 505.216.0672 or CCA.
