Rebbe Mendel (Nehemiah Persoff) is a single father who teaches the Talmud, a sacred text of Judaism, to the boys of his small Polish town. Behind closed doors, he also instructs his daughter, Yentl (Barbra Streisand), despite the fact that girls are forbidden to study religious scripture. When Yentl‘s father dies, she still has a strong desire to learn about her faith, so she disguises herself as a male, enrolls in a religious school, and unexpectedly finds love along the way.


Yentl is screening as part of our Feminist Film Club: Tyneside Cinema’s programme dedicated to highlighting the contributions of women in filmmaking.

Screening as part of  BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO. bfimusicals.co.uk
