NEW RELEASE FOR 2012!
When Our Bubbas and Zeydas Were Young
The Schaechter Sisters on Stage

Ven di bobes un zeydes zenen geven yung: Di Shekhter-tekhter af der bine

Follow Di Shekhter-tekhter (Reyna & Temma), accompanied by their Musical Director and father, Binyumen Schaechter, in this film premiere of their one-of-a-kind musical revue, which has enthralled audiences around the world. Attracting a new generation to Yiddish song, the dynamic duo brings to life the youth of our grandparents in Eastern Europe, as well as upon arrival in America. Through a potpourri of characters from the Yiddish songbook, featuring great Yiddish composers and writers, such as Sholem Aleichem, Itsik Manger and Mordecai Gebirtig, they inspire us with themes that are universal and contemporary, such as young love, family relationships and class struggle. Academy Award®-nominated director Josh Waletzky, best known for Partisans of Vilna, Image Before My Eyes and Pripetshik Sings Yiddish, incorporates interviews in the film that provide an insight into this family and their unique mission to share Yiddish with the world.

"This film is bound to appeal to every audience!" - Theodore Bikel

"A charming trip down Yiddish Memory Lane with the delightful Shekhter-tekhter. I 'kvelled' and so will you." - Mike Burstyn

"The perfect l'dor vador gift for parents to give to their children, teachers to give to their students, and grandchildren to give back to their grandparents." - Tovah Feldshuh
