“The Dybbuk” is a Yiddish film classic based on the celebrated play of the same name by S. An-sky, written during the turbulent years of 1912–1917. Filmed on location in Poland in 1937, it brought together the best talents of Polish Jewry—script writers, composers, choreographers, set designers, and actors. The film’s exquisite musical and dance interludes evoke the cultural richness of both shtetl communities and Polish Jewry on the eve of World War II.
