Have you ever wondered if you could scientifically become more of a mensch? Or do you want to be featured in a film by a renowned Internet innovator? Either way, Tiffany Shlain has you covered.
The award-winning Bay Area filmmaker — who is also known for founding the Webby Awards and the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences — is making a Jewish companion film to her short “The Science of Character,” which delves into practical and scientific ways that we can all improve our character traits. Shlain’s upcoming film “The Making of a Mensch,” due to be released during the High Holidays on September 18, will reframe “The Science of Character” through “the lens of the ancient Jewish teachings of Mussar.”
