Saul Rubinek Tribute
The Leonard Wolinsky Foundation
As TJFF premieres the new acclaimed Yiddish film, Shttl, featuring actor Saul Rubinek speaking in his first language, we pay tribute to the beloved and influential actor/writer/director. In addition to a special in-person discussion with Rubinek, TJFF explores how his screen persona emerged from some of his earliest roles in Canadian television. Offering a soulfulness and sponteineity to the role of the ‘Other,’ the actor brought to life an outsider as never before seen on Canadian screens.
