Sunday, June 30
*Live reading by Yiddish actor Shane Baker
(1940, Max Nosseck) In strictly-segregated Poland, a young cantor – the legendary Moyshe Oysher, in his best role – succumbs to the allure of Gentile culture and joins the Warsaw Opera, while pining for the world he left behind. With an original score by Alexander Olshanetsky and cantorial pieces that fit the story like they were written for it. Based on the true story that inspired THE JAZZ SINGER. DCP restoration. Approx. 82 min.
