"Nourished by Yiddish literature and theater, Yiddish film production in Eastern Europe and the United States flourished between the two world wars. Using interviews, archival photographs and film clips, the [film] achieves an embrace as comprehensive as its subject, and assigns equal importance to music and tradition, comedy and tragedy, actors and directors. The film traces the decline of the cinema and the language, discussing the Holocaust's decimation of European Jewry, Stalinist suppression of Jewish culture and the New World's demands for assimilation"--Publisher's description.
