The Jewish Giant began with photographer Jenny Carchman’s search to uncover a story that remained secret for 25 years: the story of the very large man whom Diane Arbus photographed towering over an older couple. The caption read, "Jewish giant at home with his parents in the Bronx , NY, 1970,” and this man was Jenny’s cousin. The Jewish Giant is a story of suffering, of not fitting in, of the body betraying itself, and of the bizarre life-twists that can subsume a family.

The Forgotten Refugees explores the history, culture, and forced exodus of Middle Eastern and North African Jewish communities in the second half of the 20th century. Using extensive testimony of refugees from Egypt, Yemen, Libya, Iraq, and Morocco the film recounts the stories - of joy and suffering - that nearly one million individuals have carried with them for so long. The film weaves personal stories with dramatic archival footage of rescue missions, historic images of exodus and resettlement, and analyses by contemporary scholars to tell the story of how and why the Jewish population in the Middle East and North Africa declined from one million in 1945 to several thousand today.
