To the left is a still from the "The Tribe," an 18-minute short directed by Webby Awards founder Tiffany Shlain, right, and one of 50 short films streamed on the Sundance festival Web site. The Tribe is described by Sundance as "an unorthodox, unauthorized history of the Jewish people." It points out the irony that the Barbie doll, the Aryan-looking symbol of the ideal American woman, was created by a Jewish woman.
