Presented in partnership with Birds Eye View as part of Reclaim the Frame.

YENTL sees Barbra Streisand portraying a young woman living in an Ashkenazi shtetl in Poland in 1904. Desperate to receive an education in Talmudic Law before her father dies, she decides to dress and live like a man and enters a religious school, falling for a fellow student along the way. Directed, co-written and co-produced by its lead star, YENTL also earned Streisand the honour of becoming the first – and so far only – woman to receive a Golden Globe for directing. - Independent Cinema Office

This screening will be followed by a talk chaired by Mia Bays (Reclaim the Frame) with Christina Newland (film critic, journalist and film programmer) and Rabbi Tanya Sakhnovich (Nottingham Liberal Synagogue).
