LAS VEGAS – A documentary that explores the roots and themes of the most popular song in Judaism is the featured film this Sunday in the Las Vegas Jewish film festival now in full swing at the Adelson Educational Campus.

The screening will be at 1 p.m. in the film that features interviews with Harry Belafonte, Leonard Nimoy and Regina Spektor.

Tickets are $10 per screening and passes cost $50.

Now on its 12th year, the festival is the biggest and longest-running in town, even though it focuses on a narrow audience. It is presented by CineVegas Joshua Abbey.

It started on Jan. 13 and will end on Jan. 27.

Other featured films include Gainsbourg: A Heroic life, which will be shown on Jan. 25. It chronicles the life of French singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg, from his upbringing in Nazi-occupied France through his love affairs with women, including actress Brigitte Bardot.

The other film is Life in Stills, which will be shown on Jan. 27. It’s a documentary that follows the efforts of a 96-year-old woman and her son to preserve the photo archive of her husband.
