Solomon and Gaenor is Back on the Big Screen!

The UK Jewish Film Festival are screening the Welsh-Yiddish classic at 2 Welsh venues this December.

This Oscar-nominated classic is 20 years old this year. Set amid the anti-Jewish riots of 1911, and starring Ioan Gruffudd, Nia Roberts and Maureen Lipman, Solomon a Gaenor tells the story of a young Orthodox-Jewish man in South Wales who falls in love with a local girl. Will their love survive their respective communities’ prejudice and fear?

[an] understated, beautifully layered performance. – The New York Times
