From a magical-realist comedy set in Hasidic Brooklyn, to two masterly-directed films based on stories by Sholem Aleichem and Franz Kafka, TJFF presents an eclectic collection of wonderful new shorts films from around the world, produced in the Yiddish language. Plus, two charming English shorts show a younger generation reflecting on the Yiddish language and values they have inherited.
Films available from October 29-30. Purchase your ticket here.
