Notes and Editorial Reviews

"It must be an art for the great mass of people." -Isa Kremer

Isa Kremer's life was marked by a fierce talent, independent mind and firm determination. Her passion was Yiddish music - birthed in the kitchens in Russia. The language of the lullabies mothers sang to their children. Isa was the first woman to bring Yiddish songs to the world concert stage, and an incredible singer in 24 languages. The documentary chronicles her life through footage, photos, and interviews with those who knew her.

Directed by Nina Baker Feinberg & Ted Schillinger, USA, 2000, 56 min. Produced by Lois Barr and Maya Friedler of the Women's media Group.
