Yiddish Writers Film Project
Worlds within a World: Conversations with Yiddish Writers
Beyle Schaechter Gottesman: Song of Autumn


 	The League for Yiddish is pleased to announce that the film Beyle Schaechter Gottesman: Song of
Autumn (Beyle Shekhter-Gotesman: Harbstlid), the second film in our series Worlds within a World:
Conversations with Yiddish Writers (A velt mit veltelekh: shmuesn mit yidishe shraybers) is ready
and available for viewing and purchase.
 	Beyle Schaechter Gottesman: Song of Autumn is an edited  interview conducted with this remarkable
Yiddish poet, songwriter, and singer by her son, folklorist/journalist Itsik Gottesman, and
enhanced by photo stills and Schaechter-Gottesman's music. The film is 72 minutes long. The
 	In Song of Autumn, BEYLE, whose name has become synonymous with modern Yiddish song and who has
played a central role in revivng and inspiring interest in Yiddish song and poetry among a whole
new generation of artists, discusses her life and creative path: her upbringing in the Yiddish
cultural milieu of Tshernevits (then Rumania) as the daughter of a remarkable traditional folk
singer and a passionate Yiddishist, the war years in Rumania,  her development as a modern Yiddish
poet and songwriter in New York, and her views on Yiddish literature and creativity. What emerges
is a rich picture of the world of a woman who recited poetry to the great Yiddish fabulist Eliezer
Shteynbarg as a child, was part of a vibrant Yiddish enclave in the Bronx, and is the only Yiddish
poet ever to be awarded a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts,
the nation's top honor for folk arts.
 	Highlights include Beyle's reciting several of her poems as well as singing several of her own
songs, among them the favorites,"Mayn khaverte Mintsye" (My Friend Mintsye) and "Borekh-habo dir,
khaver" (Welcome, My Friend).
The film is directed and edited by Josh Waletzky, director  and editor of Image before My Eyes
and Partisans of Vilna. Among other awards, Josh is the recipient of the Silver Ducat at the
Mannheim International Film Festival for Image and First Prize at the Anthropos International Film
Festival for  Partisans.
 	Worlds within a World: Conversations with Yiddish Writers aims to provide a visual and oral
document of prominent contemporary Yiddish writers so that present and future generations can
"spend time" with these fascinating figures and gain some insight into their work and milieu. Thus
far, in addition to Schaechter-Gottesman, we have filmed Itche Goldberga, painter/writer Yonia
Fain, and poet/novelist Chava Rosenfarb.
 	Also available for purchase is our first film Itche Goldberg: A Century of Yiddish Letters (ITSHE
GOLDBERG: OYB NIT NOKH HEKHER) on Yiddish educator, essayist, literary critic, poet and editor
Itche Goldberg.

 	Both films make the perfect program for a Yiddish circle, class, or even your local Jewish or
documentary film festival. The films are available in VHS or DVD format. To order, send $30 (PER
FILM) plus $5 postage (in the US) OR YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION to League for Yiddish
