The NC State community is welcome to attend a screening of The Dybbuk. Following the screening of the film, Eliza Rose, a professor in the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literature, will lead a discussion about the film. Rose's research focuses on the visual cultures and literature of Poland and Eastern Europe.
The Dybbuk is a mystical tale of star-crossed lovers and supernatural possession. Two friends tempt fate by betrothing their unborn children. Years later, when the pledge is broken and the couple’s love is thwarted, Channon turns to the dangerous power of the Kabbalah to win back his love. Made in Poland on the eve of World War II in a stylized expressionistic manner that has been called “Hasidic Gothic,” The Dybbuk, based on S. Ansky’s play, is one of the finest films ever produced in the Yiddish language.
