Jewish Book Week audience enjoyed a silent melodrama with a brand new commissioned score performed live.

Considered one of the greatest Jewish Movies of all time, 'Hungry Hearts' is a 1922 silent movie adaptation of Ania Yezierska’s story of a Jewish family who escape Tsarist Russia, to find a better life in America. Shot on location in New York’s Lower East Side, the film is a tragic and wonderfully comic portrait of the era.
