From Cairo to the Cloud is a fascinating journey through the most extraordinary saga of Jewish discovery you’ve never heard of. In 1896, Solomon Schechter entered the sacred storeroom of an ancient synagogue in Cairo and discovered a vast treasure trove of manuscripts that revolutionized our understanding of Jewish history and illuminated a thousand years of vibrant Jewish life in the heart of the Islamic world.

Rita Briansky was four when her family came from Poland to a small lumber town in Northern Ontario, where wild berries in the woods nearby and the Aurora Borealis in the sky above set her on her path in art. Her paintings and etchings are found in homes, museums and institutions across Canada and the United States. And today, at 93, she is still at her easel. “One of the nice things about being old”, she says, “is that you feel freer.” This film conveys, in Rita’s own words, the life story of an inquisitive, versatile artist and teacher. “It’s with me all the time - the wonder and the amazement”.
