Boris Dorfman a Mentsh (2014)
- Summaries (1)
'A Mentsh' is a movie shot entirely in the Yiddish language, which makes it unique. It's set in the former multinational city of Lviv, Ukraine, and the first part of a planned Yiddish trilogy (Lviv, Tel Aviv, New York). Lviv was a centre of Jewish life for 600 years. 75 years after the beginning of World War II, Boris Dorfman takes us on a trip to all the places of horror and hope reflecting the Jewish history. The 90-year-old activist is virtually the last one in town still speaking the almost extinct language of Yiddish. While remembering the past, he lives in the present and tries to prepare the people for the future. He is 'a mentsh', someone full of love and empathy.
