BLACK HONEY: The Life and Poetry of Avraham Sutzkever
Sabes JCC
Minneapolis, MN
Share this event:


Presented as part of the 25th annual Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival.

As long as Abraham Sutzkever lived, he wouldn't let a film about his life be made. Today, eight years after his passing, Black Honey tells the incredible story of the greatest Yiddish poet of modern times. The man who led the Paper Brigade underground movement that saved Jewish manuscripts from the Nazis, survived the WWII due to Stalin sending him a private rescue plane, testified in the Nuremberg Trials, and immigrated to Israel in 1947 where he led Yiddish culture, while writing in astonishing vitality. This film is part of a special project, The Hebrews, dedicated to Jewish poets. The project won a Special Mention Award at the Haifa International Film Festival "Between Israeli and Jewish Identity Competition Section", 2018

Directed by Uri Barbash | 2018 | Documentary | Yiddish, Hebrew with English Subtitles | 76 minutes

Post Film Speaker
Meyer Weinshel, PhD candidate (Germanic Studies and History) at the University of Minnesota, completing his doctoral research on German and Yiddish poetry before-and-after World War II.

Presented in partnership with Minneapolis Yiddish Vinkl.
