Athena Cinema hosts free showing of OU Professor Pearl Gluck's DIVAN

Mar 13, 2013

DIVANposter

To reclaim an ancestral couch upon which esteemed rabbis slept, Pearl Gluck travels from her Hasidic community in Brooklyn to her roots in Hungary. Along the way, a colorful cast of characters gets involved – the couch exporter, her ex-communist cousin in Budapest, a pair of matchmakers, and a renegade group of formerly ultra-Orthodox Jews. Divan is a visual parable that offers the possibility of personal reinvention and cultural re-upholstery.

 

Athena Cinema will host a free screening of Professor Pearl Gluck's 
documentary, DIVAN, on Wednesday, March 20th at 8pm.
