In 1981, Jeremy Kagan wrote and directed the classic film “The Chosen,” based on Chaim Potok’s novel about two boys from very different Jewish families in 1940’s Brooklyn. To celebrate the movie’s 40th anniversary, Kagan will join the Forward’s executive editor Adam Langer for a discussion of the movie and its impact on perceptions of Judaism and on his own life as well. Kagan will also take questions about his remarkable career in Hollywood where he has directed such films as “The Big Fix,” “The Journey of Natty Gann,” “Crown Heights” and Golda’s Balcony.
