West of Hester Street (1983) Written, produced, and directed by Allen Mondell and Cynthia Salzman Mondell, this 1983 documentary chronicles the movement of Jewish immigrants to Texas in the early 1900s. To tell this story, the film combines historical dramatizations of certain events with a fictionalized account of one immigrant’s story, the latter of which is narrated by Academy Award-nominated actor Sam Jaffe.
