According to Gur Bentwich, “Bentwich Syndrome” is a psychological phenomenon that causes sufferers to glorify and exaggerate their family’s importance. In this witty and quirky multi-media documentary, great-grandson Gur and his wife Maya Kenig invite you along on a Monty Python-esque ride as they set out to discover the truth about the Bentwiches.

From humble origins in Whitechapel, the eccentric and ambitious 19th century lawyer Herbert Bentwich set out to establish an aristocratic Jewish dynasty that had a profound impact on British Jewish life and on the new state of Israel. This remarkable story of fervent Zionists, inspired artists, and outrageously determined rebels is a truly interesting tale. Fasten your seat belts!
