Film Opening
Description Directed by award-winning filmmaker, actor, and scriptwriter Paul Mazursky (Next Stop, Greenwich Village; An Unmarried Woman; Down and Out in Beverly Hills; Enemies: A Love Story), Yippee chronicles the director’s whirlwind journey to Uman, a small Ukrainian town that's the site of an annual gathering of Hasidic Jewish men who make Rosh Hashanah pilgrimages to the burial place of Rabbi Nachman of Bratslav (1772–1810). Yippee is an infectious road movie filled with electricity and awe. Mazursky is a funny, curious, and generous guide. A post-screening discussion will be led by Dr. Joshua Shanes.
