"Kvetch" is an independent short film produced with the help of a Slifka Arts Grant.¬† It relates the story of Berel Barenbaum, a former Yiddish comedian, who finds himself alone and unmourned on his deathbed.¬† In his final moments, he imagines a surreal theatrical performance of his life's story, played out completely within his hospital room.¬† What ensues is a reflective, humorous, and ultimately sorrowful meditation on a man's life, the culture that produced him, and how both will soon fade from memory.¬† The film features performances by actors from the National Yiddish Theater Folksbiene
