The Poetic Life of Abraham Sutzkever

As long as Abraham Sutzkever lived, he wouldn’t let a film about his life be made. Ten years after his passing, Black Honey tells the incredible story of the greatest Yiddish poet of modern times. 

While writing with astonishing vitality, Abraham Sutzkever survived WWII, led the Paper Brigade underground movement that saved Jewish manuscripts from the Nazis, testified in the Nuremberg Trials, and led Yiddish culture in Israel after immigrating in 1947.
