B&W silent film with live accompaniment . This event is part of the YI LOVE YIDDISH FEST 2020. 

“Пять невест” (Five Brides) – Aleksandr Solovyov 1930 This is an amazing piece of Soviet agit-prop from 1930.

This extraordinary piece of cinematic story telling was made by Ukrainian Film Director and former Red Army soldier, A. Solovyov. He brings astonishing narrative, action and direction. Cinematography by Albert Kyun brings us amazing camera tilting, close-up, panning shots, camera rolling etc etc. The minimalist yet meaningful screenplay is by Dovid Maryan.

Merlin and Polina Shepherd​ as The Sound & Light Cinematic Duo accompany this fantastic film on clarinet, piano and voice.
