Tevye

Director: Julius Kohanyi

Tevye is a popular character in some of the stories of the great Yiddish author, Sholom Aleichem. Saul Field, printmaker and film maker, produced a series of prints which he called the Sholom Aleichem suite. Now they have been partly animated, and we are given a glimpse into the mind and heart of Tevye.
