I began this documentary process by interviewing my grandmother, going back 2+ generations to the Russian Revolution, because I wanted to know where I come from and how that shapes my identity.  I’ve answered most of the questions I had about the past and the present, but I also wanted to know about the future.  What effects, if any, have been passed down to the next generation?

Since I don’t have my own children yet, I turned to my niece and nephew to provide a perspective on growing up Jewish as part of the first wave of Jews descended from Soviet Russia, but born in America.

Also, they’re really cute.
