Green Fields is considered one of the great films of the Yiddish cinema that flourished before the second world war. In the film, adapted from Peretz Hirshbein’s classic play, an ascetic young scholar ventures into the Lithuanian countryside, searching for “true Jews.” Filmed in New York’s Catskill Mountains, it is one of the most critically acclaimed and beloved of American Yiddish talkies.
Green Fields celebrates an idyllic world of tribal wholeness and innate piety. Rarely has a film represented the shtetl with such lyricism. In a newly restored print in Yiddish with English subtitles.
