(Woody Allen, US 1984, 84 min., 35mm)
In a film that exults in the tradition of Jewish storytelling, Woody Allen added an extra air of authenticity by casting several revered comics, his own manager, and the owner of the Carnegie Deli as themselves. Allen, Mia Farrow, and Nick Apollo Forte star in this black-and-white comedy about a love triangle and a jilted gangster.

(Joseph Green, Konrad Tom, Poland 1938, 97 min., DCP, Yiddish w/subtitles)
Molly Picon, the “Queen of the Yiddish Musical,” shines as Mamele (the little mother), the dutiful daughter keeping her family intact after the death of their mother. She’s so busy cooking, cleaning, and matchmaking for her brothers and sisters that she has little time for herself—until she discovers the violinist across the courtyard. Film restoration and English subtitles by the National Center for Jewish Film.
