JBW 2012 presented a screening of the powerful 1920 silent film classic, ‘The Golem’, accompanied by a brand new musical score from Robin Harris on piano (with a few brass instrumental surprises).

The film brings to life the Golem, one of the most haunting figures from Jewish lore, dating back to16th Prague. A Rabbi in the ghetto creates a figure from clay and brings it to life to protect the Jewish community from the mounting threat outside its walls. A tale of prophecy, lust and monsters.
