The Dybbuk
(Poland, 1937, Yiddish with English subtitles)
Olin Language Center, Room 115  8:00 pm
An expressionist masterpiece, The Dybbuk is based on the celebrated play by S. Ansky, written during the turbulent years of 1912-1917. Boundaries separating the natural from the supernatural dissolve as ill-fated pledges, unfulfilled passions and untimely deaths ensnare two families in a tragic labyrinth of spiritual possession. The film brought together the best talents of Polish Jewry, scriptwriters, composers, choreographers, set designers, and actors. The film's exquisite musical and dance interludes evoke the cultural richness of both shtetl communities and Polish Jewry on the eve of WWII.
