About the Event

Drama / Ukraine, France / Yiddish with English subtitles / 2022 / 114 minutes - Watch trailer here

Director Ady Walter’s extraordinary and beautiful film is not about the disasters overwhelming Soviet Ukraine during WWII, but rather something completely different. It is a celebration of the dynamic nature of Jewish life in a fictional village on the eve of the Nazi invasion. Called “a masterpiece” by many critics, it immerses you into the characters’ lives and loves, as if you are interacting with real-life people. Like filmmaker Mendele who returns to his hometown from cosmopolitan Kyiv, his neighbors are full of dreams, hopes and passionately voiced opinions. SHTTL is “not only as an absolutely essential Jewish film but as an exquisite testament to those beautiful lives that never came to be.”
