Winner of the Audience Award at the Rome Film Festival and undoubtedly one of the most spellbinding films of the year, Shttl beautifully recreates and captures the life and loves of a Yiddish-speaking shtetl on the eve of the Nazi invasion of the then Soviet Ukraine. This film opens a window into the rich cultural world of our parents and grandparents and will inspire us to explore a language too many have forgotten.
