YIDDISH BERLIN is happy to welcome the actress and writer Hadas Kalderon, granddaughter of Avrom Sutzkever. In a conversation with film scholar Lihi Nagler she will tell us about the genesis of Black Honey (which we are showing the day before), the first documentary on her grandfather where she acts as a co-producer, scriptwriter and interviewee.

Hopefully Hadas Kalderon will also share some of her memories and experiences she had with her grandfather. The second part will be open for questions from the audience.

The talk will be held in EN.

Admission free — donations welcome!
