THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR JEWISH FILM'S 12TH ANNUAL FILM FESTIVAL
JEWISHFILM.2009

The Jester (Der Purimspiler)     

by Joseph Green and Jan Nowina-Przybylski
(90 minutes, b&w/sepia tone/blue tone, Poland, 1937, 35 mm, in Yiddish with new English subtitles)
Restoration by The National Center for Jewish film
New England Premiere

From the directors of Yiddle with His Fiddle, The Jester stars a lonely wanderer (Warsaw Yiddish Art Theater founder Zygmunt Turkow), a circus performer and Esther the shoemaker's daughter (married 2nd Ave Yiddish theater stars Hymie Jacobson and Miriam Kressyn). Filmed on location in Poland, the film’s vaudeville scenes offer a glimpse of Warsaw’s then-thriving Yiddish cabarets.

Go behind the scenes of the film’s restoration and music with guests Sharon Pucker Rivo and Hankus Netsky.
