Welcome to Yiddishland

WELCOME TO YIDDISHLAND takes us inside the Art and practices of a diverse and international group of innovative, radical artists, creating new works in the endangered Yiddish language about the important issues of our time. Our film asks why they create in Yiddish, what it means to them personally and professionally, and what obstacles they must overcome to revive this richly expressive language. In the end, as we see these Artists come together in a joyous, vibrant international festival to share their works, their skills, and their passion with the next generation, we witness the stirring beginnings of a Yiddish cultural renaissance.
