“Black Honey: The Poetic Life of Abraham Sutzkever”
Post-Film Discussion with Film Producer Yair Qedar and Professor Avraham Novershtern
As long as Abraham Sutzkever lived, he wouldn’t let a film about his life be made. Ten years after his passing, Black Honey tells the incredible story of the greatest Yiddish poet of modern times.
While writing with astonishing vitality, Abraham Sutzkever survived WWII, led the Paper Brigade underground movement that saved Jewish manuscripts from the Nazis, testified in the Nuremburg Trials, and immigrated to Israel in 1947 where he led Yiddish culture.
