Watch Party–It Happened in Havana: A Yiddish Love Story

October 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Join writer, director and producer Judy Schiller to watch her documentary, It Happened in Havana: A Yiddish Love Story, which has aired on PBS in New York City and shown at eight film festivals. This 27-minute short film is a tribute to an older Jewish couple who look back at their childhoods on the Lower East Side of New York City and Eastern Europe, their courtship in Cuba, and their life together in New York. It features personal and archival photographs and home movies from the 1920s through the 1950s.

After the show, there will be plenty of time for Q&A with Judy Schiller, who brought this story to life — and to the screen. Bring some popcorn and a hankie for this watch party!

Ms. Schiller is a photographer and a leading New York City photo retoucher whose subjects include musicians like Aaliyah, Aaron Neville, and Carly Simon and world leaders like Nelson Mandela, not to mention events, weddings, and bar mitzvahs. Resulting from her connections with musicians, she has directed and produced a music video. Her credits also include several short pieces for charities she has worked for over the years.
