FILM: Breaking Home Ties
Sharon Pucker Rivo, executive director of the National Center for Jewish Film and professor at Brandeis University, will share and discuss the restored film that focuses on a Jewish family in pre-revolutionary Russia and New York City. The silent film with English titles will be accompanied by an original score written by UNC’s Music Department. After the screening, Professor Rivo will explore the subject of Jews on Screen, and how the diversity and vibrancy of Jewish life around the globe is captured on film.
Co-sponsored by: Department of American Studies. This event is made possible by a grant from the Charles H. Revson Foundation in honor of Eli N. Evans, ’58.
