“To the Ends of the Earth: A Portrait of Jewish San Diego,” a co-production of Cinewest Productions and the San Diego History Center, is based on over 50 interviews conducted by local filmmaker, Isaac Artenstein, including descendants of early Jewish pioneers, scientists, entrepreneurs, academics, as well as avant-garde artists, rabbis, and surfers. It creates a living portrait of a vibrant and culturally-dynamic community that has thrived in our region for over 150 years. This film is the companion to the exhibition Celebrate San Diego: The History & Heritage of San Diego’s Jewish Community. The film brings the rare voices of pioneering San Diego Jews, as well as those of today, into one immersive experience based on a theme of determination, innovation, and ingenuity.
