Skim Milk & Soft Wax

Skim Milk & Soft Wax explores Jewish identity from the point of view of the American filmmaker who was raised to believe that Israel is the "land of milk and honey". However, the realities of her personal experiences of Israel collide with that Edenic image. Instead she finds the state of Israel to be complex, shape shifting, and often disappointing. Therefore, skim milk: a substance of reduced nutritional value, but which still lives in the name of "milk." And wax: the stuff of religious offerings, which is always ready to change its shape.
