On Sunday, March 30 at 4:15 pm The National Center for Jewish Film will screen the
newly-restored 1937 Yiddish feature film THE CANTOR’S SON, starring Moishe Oysher, with new English
subtitles. The screening is part of JEWISHFILM.2008 NCJF’s 11th Annual Film Festival
running from March 29-April 13.
Restoration of the film was made possible by her friends through the Miriam Saul Krant
Preservation Fund, and by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, The Pritzker
Pucker Family Foundation, the National Foundation for Jewish Culture & the Eastman Kodak
Company, with support from Brandeis University & the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
The restored version of THE CANTOR’S SON had its world premiere at the Jerusalem Film
Festival in July 2006 and its American premiere at the New York Film Festival at Lincoln
Center in January 2007. The March 30th screening at JEWISHFILM.2008 will be the film’s
New England premiere.
We hope to see you at the screening of THE CANTOR’S SON on Sunday March 30 at 4:15 pm at
Wasserman Cinematheque at Brandeis University.
