About the Film:
Part of the Honolulu Jewish Film Festival 2018.
Directed by Barbra Streisand. 1983. USA. 134 min.
Barbra Streisand—who produced, directed and starred in Yentl—broke barriers when she became the first, and, to this day, only female recipient of the Best Director Golden Globe for the film. Based on the Isaac Bashevis Singer short story Yentl, the Yeshiva Boy, the film is about a young woman in pre-WWI Eastern Europe who disguises herself as a boy to pursue her passion for studying the Torah. When she falls in love with a fellow student (Mandy Patinkin) she cannot, of course, express her feelings.
The film will be introduced by Dr. Loretta Chen, professor at Leeward Community College.
