Arnon Shorr is the writer and director of a short film called The Pirate Captain Toledano. The first(?) film about Jewish pirates!
During our talk we get into some of the history of Jewish pirates and their motivations for becoming pirates. With a good resource included for more info.
Then we talk about the always intriguing world of indie film making and why Jewish stories aren't told more in Hollywood. Some surprising stuff here.
Plus a song from Jonah Melvon's new RainWater Project album!
