Additional Notes:
Despite the taboo surrounding homosexuality, the topic was too intriguing to be left entirely out of the Yiddish picture. This program presents Yiddish cinema as youve never seen it, plus Metropolitan Klezmers loving and live reinterpretations of movie music from the vintage soundtracks. Drummer/leader Eve Siculars eight-piece band joins the show for multimedia retro treats in a fully 21st century approach to the archives. Screen excerpts and lush new arrangements include classics and lesser-known gems from The Dybbuk, Mamele, Uncle Moses, and many more, including rarities such as newsreels from the Moscow Soviet Yiddish Theater.
