Yiddish Book Center, a Film
May 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
In her own words, comedian Gilda Radner reflects on her life and career. Weaving together her recently discovered audiotapes, interviews with friends (Chevy Chase, Lorne Michaels, Laraine Newman, Paul Shaffer and Martin Short), rare home movies and diaries read by modern-day comedians inspired by Gilda (Bill Hader, Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph and Cecily Strong), Love, Gilda opens up a unique window into the honest and whimsical world of a beloved performer whose greatest role was sharing her story.
Canada, USA, 2018, 88 mins., directed by Lisa Dapolito, English, French with English subtitles

Ideas for Mother’s Day There’s no shortage of gift ideas for Mother’s Day at the Yiddish Book Center’s museum store: from the 1938 classic film “Mamele,” starring Molly Picon and digitally restored by the National Center for Jewish Film, to Pamela Nadel’s recently released America’s Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today and Alana Newhouse’s The 100 Most Jewish Foods. And those are just a few ideas to get you started.
