Movie Info

Interviews with the 1978 Nobel Laureate in literature Isaac Bashevis Singer, who died in 1991, fill this interesting biographical documentary with acerbic and humorous commentary, as well as nostalgia for a past that can never be resuscitated. Singer left his native Poland in 1935 because of the growing Nazi presence and found refuge in New York City where his brother had already settled. Singer wrote only in Yiddish, and most of his short stories and other fiction were published by the Jewish Daily Forward, a Yiddish newspaper out of New York. Readings from Singer's writings by Judd Hirsch give some accounting of the author's interest in demons, ghosts, and the supernatural.more
