The DybbukThe Dybbuk is a Yiddish film classic based on the celebrated play of the same name by S. Ansky, written during the turbulent years of 19121917. Boundaries separating the natural from the supernatural dissolve as ill-fated pledges, unfulfilled passions, and untimely deaths ensnare two families in a tragic labyrinth of spiritual possession. Filmed on location in Poland in 1937, it brought together the best talents of Polish Jewry—script writers, composers, choreographers, set designers, and actors. The film’s exquisite musical and dance interludes evoke the cultural richness of both shtetl communities and Polish Jewry on the eve of World War II.

Poland, 1937, 123 mins., directed by Michael Waszynski, Yiddish with English subtitles. Restored by The National Center for Jewish Film.
