About Judith Montell

Biography

In addition to co-creating A HOME ON THE RANGE, Director Judith Montell was the producer, director, and co-writer of the Academy Award nominated documentary "Forever Activists: Stories from the Veterans of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade." Other projects include: "Pasporto al la Tuta Mondo," a series of twelve half-hour videos teaching the language of Esperanto; also in production are "The Political is Personal: the Story of Saul Wellman," a study of the interaction between the "old left" and the "new left;" and "The Key from Spain: Bosnian Sephardim," which looks at the Sephardic culture and 20th century history of Bosnian Jews through the story and music of Flory Jagoda, a singer and composer of Ladino songs.

Her previous project, TIMBRELS AND TORAHS, (co-directed with one of its subjects, Miriam Chaya) explored a new Jewish ritual, Simchat Hochmah, and played around the US and Europe to packed houses.
