Torah Treasures and Trash

Torah Treasures and Trash was officially selected for the Jerusalem, Vancouver and San Francisco Jewish Film Festivals.
The film describes 87-year-old Jo Milgrom's outsider art that mixes Torah and trash. Milgrom scavenges Jerusalem dumpsters for choice junk that she combines with ritual objects rescued from synagogues and funeral homes. Armed with only a glue gun, she challenges the sacred and the mundane in her assemblage.
It will be presented by American-born, Jerusalem-based documentary filmmaker Paula Weiman-Kelman who will be visiting New Zealand with her husband Rabbi Levi Kelman. Weiman-Kelman is also the founding partner in Moving Portrait Productions and Not-So-Simple Productions.
She has directed, produced and shot dozens of films inended to explore controversial issues in the Jewish world. Torah Treasures and Trash is her latest film.
