TCJFF Film Screening – Black Honey: The Life and Poetry of Avraham Sutzkever

September 15 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

$12

As long as Abraham Sutzkever lived, he wouldn’t let a film about his life be made. Today, eight years after his passing, Black Honey tells the incredible story of the greatest Yiddish poet of modern times. The man who led the Paper Brigade underground movement that saved Jewish manuscripts from the Nazis, survived the WWII due to Stalin sending him a private rescue plane, testified in the Nuremberg Trials, and immigrated to Israel in 1947 where he led Yiddish culture, while writing in astonishing vitality. This film is part of a special project, The Hebrews, dedicated to Jewish poets. The project won a Special Mention Award at the Haifa International Film Festival “Between Israeli and Jewish Identity Competition Section”, 2018.

Presented in partnership with Minneapolis Yiddish Vinkl.

Directed by Uri Barbash | 2018 | Documentary | Yiddish, Hebrew with English Subtitles | 76 minutes
