This new Yiddish language film is an unusual love story. An elderly religious Jewish man working in a morgue as a shomer (a person who keeps the body company until it is ready for burial) is plunged into remembering his past when the body of his long-lost first love arrives. In flashback memories, he recalls their meeting in a deserted Lithuanian barn during the Nazi invasion when both were hiding from the killing squads. Their fear and desperation turn into love and a pledge of eternal commitment -- until an unexpected intrusion changes everything. The intensity and quiet beauty of this film provoke reflection on love, forgiveness, and coming to terms with the past. 83 minutes, in Yiddish with English subtitles. Followed by Q & A with CSUN Jewish Studies faculty.
Co-Sponsored by Adat Ari El, Temple Ramat Zion, and CSUN Hillel
