Romeo and Juliet in Yiddish

May 19th, 2011 | admin | No Comments | Categories: Blog

  • Romeo and Juliet in Yiddish is an ambitious romantic dramady, directed by Eve Annenberg, that retells the famous story with 55% of the dialogue in Yiddish- the first American film to do so in 70 years. The film made a sold-out debut at the New York Jewish Film Festival earlier this year and has won over audiences in Berlin, London and Montreal. The film was shot on a meager budget of $175,000, and needs to raise some more funds to finish the film before it plays at the Film Society of Lincoln Center and other festivals this summer. Watch the trailer and donate to this worthwhile cause.
