In this uplifting, joyous documentary, 25 girls from Israel and Germany set out on a summer’s journey to learn and sing Yiddish songs created by the poet Kadya Molodowsky and musician Alan Bern. But the teens are not only faced with the challenge of learning their new repertoire, they also have to learn to grow together and find unity between their two distinct choirs. There are many differences that set them apart from each other — their religion, culture, and language — but what unites them is their love of singing, an unbridled power that gives hope for a new, peaceful, and better world. This inspiring story presents an unvarnished look at the encounters, the disappointments, and the joys that these teenage girls experienced along the way to a major live performance of Yiddish songs.

Accompanying the film premiere is a discussion with film subject & composer Dr. Alan Bern and moderator Vanessa Ressler. To view the conversation please click here.
