"The Jester"’s lively circus and vaudeville music and set pieces provide a glimpse of 1930s Warsaw’s thriving Yiddish revues and cabarets, which were destroyed soon after. Many of the film’s Polish-Jewish crew and actors were killed during the Holocaust, giving the film’s touches of melancholy an even more profound reading for today’s audiences.

Poland, 1937. Yiddish with English subtitles.
