Hungry Hearts, a Live Film Event - In association with JW3


Hungry Hearts is spoken of as one of the greatest-ever Jewish films. A silent movie from 1922, it is adapted from Ania Yezierska`s story of a Jewish family who escape Tsarist Russia for a better life in America. Hungry hearts is a tragic and comic portrait of a defining era, shot on location on new York`s Lower East Side. Enjoy the fim, accompanied by a new film score: a fusion of original compositions, Klezmer melodies and improvised selections, performed live by Robin Harris and Laura Anstee.
