“A filmmaker returns from Kyiv to his rural village to marry the love of his life. He is expected to marry the Rabbi’s daughter, which disrupts the balance of the whole town. In one unflinching shot, this film presents a day in the life of a Jewish village before it disappears. SHTTL is the story of the inhabitants of a Yiddish Ukrainian village at the border of Poland, 24 hours before the Nazi invasion, known as Operation Barbarossa” – Menemsha Films

Join us for the Montreal Premiere of SHTTL, on Monday, August 28th, 2023 at 7:00 pm at the Cinema Cineplex Forum. The film screening will be followed by a discussion with Executive Producer Eric Gozlan and Actor and Singer Sharon Azrieli, moderated by Eli Batalion of YidLife Crisis.

Tickets are $10 and reservations are required through Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.ca/…/montreal-premiere-of-shttl…

“A new approach to Holocaust film … Instead of honing in on the horror, it celebrates the vibrancy and diversity of lives that never stood a chance to grow.” – Slash

“Shttl is a gem. A film that deserves a viewing on the loftiest screen available. This film left me breathless.” – Reel News Daily

(Film in Yiddish, Subtitled in English)
