The first public screening of the new Yiddish film with English subtitles,
When Our Bubbas and Zeydas Were Young - The Schaechter Sisters on Stage,
featuring Di Shekhter-tekhter (Reyna and Temma Schaechter)
will be shown tomorrow evening, Wednesday, October 31, 2012 at 7:30 PM sharp,
at Haverford College, 370 Lancaster Ave, Haverford PA 19041,
in the Chase Hall Auditorium.
Admission: free. All are welcome!
(If you can't make it, you can still order the DVD. See below.)
The film is directed and produced by Academy-Award-nominated
documentary filmmaker Josh Waletzky.
The film has been selected for the Ashkenaz Festival in Toronto,
Miami Jewish Film Festival and the Montreal International Yiddish
It is expected that Binyumen Schaechter, Musical Director and
Executive Producer of the film and father of Di Shekhter-tekhter
will be on hand for the Haverford Screening. If so, part of the
documentary film / concert video will be screened
and then Schaechter will talk about the making of the film and answer
questions. And copies of the DVD will then be available for purchase
after the film.
If Schaechter is not able to make it in from NYC (following Hurricane
Sandy), the entire film will be screened.
