1922 Silent with Live Music by Composer Donald Sosin.
NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE – New Digital Restoration by The National Center for Jewish Film. Thinking he has killed his friend Paul in a jealous rage, David Bergmann flees pre-revolutionary Russia for New York, where he becomes a successful lawyer and woos smart, independent Rose. When the Bergmann parents move to New York, immigrant life takes its toll. Will David marry Rose? Will the Bergmanns be reunited? And what about Paul, the friend David thought he killed back in Russia? Long thought lost, the world’s only existing print of Breaking Home Ties was discovered, rescued, and restored by The National Center for Jewish Film. Critic’s Pick Best Film of the New York Jewish Film Festival. With more than one thousand film scores written and recorded to date, Donald Sosin is one of the world’s leading silent film composers. Q&A with NCJF directors Sharon Pucker Rivo & Lisa Rivo and musician Donald Sosin will include a video of before-and-after the restoration.
