Alicia Svigals & Donald Sosin: "The Ancient Law"

Set in Galicia in the 1860s, E.A. DuPont's 1923 silent classic film is about Baruch, a Rabbi's son from the shtetl who leaves home to become famous Shakespearean actor and is disowned by his father. Baruch continues to long for home, and must find a way to reconcile his religious heritage with his love of secular literature. The movie paints a complex portrait of the tension between tradition and modernity. 

The film will be screened with a new score that is being performed live by klezmer superstar Alicia Svigals and film music legen Donald Slosin.
