Jewish East End Celebration Society Screenings

There are no dates/times listed for this event

On Sunday September 30 at Bethnal Green Library the Jewish East End Celebration Society will be screening Films of the Jewish East End and introducing two celebrity visitors.

The morning is devoted to documentaries -- East Endings (a lunchtime conversation in which entertaining and well-known characters reminisce about the East End of their childhoods), Vanishing Street (the story of Hessel Street market) and Wandering Star (bringing the Yiddish theatre back to life).

Actor Barry Davis makes a personal appearance to read a famous Yiddish poem about Hessel Street market and to pay tribute to Fiddler on the Roof star Anna Tzelniker, one of the last links with the old Yiddish theatre, who died recently.

In the afternoon, there will be a personal appearance by playwright and poet Bernard Kops, who introduces two of his films, originally screened on the ITV network. Just One Kid won a Silver Hugo Award at the Chicago Film Festival. It’s a Lovely Day Tomorrow was nominated for an International Emmy Award for Drama Series and has at its centre the Bethnal Green tube disaster of 1943.

These are all terrific films and this is a rare oppportunity to experience them.

Details are: Morning session: 10am. Afternoon session: 2pm.

Bethnal Green Library (next to Bethnal Green tube), Cambridge Heath Road, London E2 OHZ.

Morning only: £11 (JEECS members £9). Afternoon only: £11 (JEECS members £9). All-day ticket: £18 (JEECS members £15).
