VIDEO-CONCERT: A JOURNEY INTO KLEZMER MUSICAL CULTURE AND YIDDISH SONG
with Gabriele Coen, Pietro Lussu, Barbara Eramo
 
An online event with saxophonist Gabriele Coen, the greatest Italian exponent of Klezmer music, pianist Pietro Lussu and singer Barbara Eramo, a guest in three pieces of the concert. The concert repertoire is a short journey into Klezmer musical culture and Yiddish song. Klezmer music and Yiddish song share a long and tormented path, which marks four centuries of life and wandering culture, starting from the lands of Eastern Europe to arrive in the United States, where the encounter with jazz will provide new life thanks to key figures such as George Gershwin and Benny Goodman, Mickey Katz and John Zorn, and finally the return in Europe.

IL GIUDICE DEI GIUSTI
(The Judge of the Righteous)
 
On the occasion of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco presents the screening of Il Giudice dei Giusti (The Judge of the Righteous), a tv documentary that won 2003 critics prize “Ilaria Alpi,” written by Gabriele Nissim and Emanuela Audisio, directed by Enrico Marchese (in Italian with English subtitles).
 
The documentary is based on the book Il Tribunale del bene (The Tribunal of Good) (2003) written by Gabriele Nissim. It tells the story of Moshe Bejski (1920-2007), a Polish-born Israeli Supreme Court Justice and President of Yad Vashem’s Righteous Among the Nations Commission, who after surviving the Holocaust with the help of Oskar Schindler, immigrated to Israel.
