This moving and timely documentary tells the story of Tamar Manasseh, an African-American rabbinical student who is combating gun violence on the South Side of Chicago with magnetic, self-assured energy through her organization MASK:  Mothers Against Senseless Killings. They Ain’t Ready for Me explores the complex identity and motivations of an extraordinary person who is Jewish and Black, and how these intersecting identities offer her a road map for addressing one of America’s most urgent crises.

How does a virtual film festival work?

  • The film will have a 48 hour viewing period from August 3, 7pm - August 5, 7pm. You must watch the film during the viewing period. 
  • You will receive a link and password to view the film 24 hours before the screening period starts. Be sure to check your Spam folder. 
  • Upon purchasing a ticket, you will view a confirmation page with links to register the Zoom discussion with the director. The discussion is free, but you must register with the link to take part in the post-film discussion. 
  • Internet speed is essential to home-viewing. If you haven't streamed movies at home before, we recommend running a speed test for your internet at https://www.speedtest.net to make sure you can easily stream the film. The minimum download speed is 10Mbps, but we recommend 25-35Mbps for optimal viewing. Additional information about streaming is available at our website, https://www.abqjewishfilmfest.com

 What is the differences between "Individual" and "Household" tickets? 

  • Individual Viewing: intended for individual use
  • Household Viewing: intended for 2+ people to share & watch together within one physical household
