Subject: "Mending the Curtain," a film on the  Montreal International 
Yiddish Theatre Festival

Now available on DVD!

To the members of Mendele. Sholem Aleichem. My name is Ben Gonshor

I'm a filmmaker and I recently co-wrote and produced a feature length 
documentary about the first ever international Yiddish theatre festival 
that took place in Montreal in 2009. That festival was the first of its 
kind in the history of Yiddish culture which, by extension, makes the film 
special because its the only one of its kind as well. I think it's an 
important historical document, educational tool and entertaining as well.

The film premiered in May of last year at the L.A. Jewish Film Festival.

It's now availale on DVD.

You can read more about the film, the filmmakers, press previews and view 
a clip at our website 

I hope the readers of Mendele will be interested in purchasing a copy of 
the film either for personal use or for educational purposes.

The individual price for the DVD is $20
The institutional price for the DVD is $150

If interested, copies can be purchased directly from our website at this 
link http://mendingthetorncurtain.com/orders/ or you can be in touch with 
me directly by
emailing me at bengonshor at gmail.com<mailto:bengonshor at gmail.com>
