On August 12th, 1952, 13 Yiddish poets and writers were murdered by Stalin's forces. This neon animation of Shards (Brokhshtiker), a Yiddish poem by Peretz Markish, one of those killed, was created to commemorate the 60th anniversary of that night. Jack Feldstein's The Loser Who Won was featured in the 2006 NYJFF.
Followed by How to Re-establish a Vodka Empire.
Director Jack Feldstein in person at both screenings!
