The Jewish Public Library presents a film produced by Serge Lalou and Itai Tamir French and Yiddish with English subtitles, 60 minutes YIDDISH by Nurith Aviv (France, 2020) Seven young people share their love for Yiddish avant-garde poetry written during the interwar period - a period which saw a huge outbreak of Yiddish culture and creativity. The poetry written was both personal and universal, closely aligned with the art movements of the time. The seven participants in the film, some of them Jewish and some not, move and live between different countries and languages. Each tells of their connection to Yiddish and to a poet or poetess close to their heart. For them, this poetry does not only belong to the Jewish past but speaks to the present.
