FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hanukkah Miracle

 
"Yiddish Theater: A Love Story," the critically acclaimed sleeper documentary, produced by Ravit Markus and Dan Katzir of New Love Films, which ran at the Laemmle’s in Los Angeles for 18 weeks, as well as played in theaters Nationwide, has been optioned to be adapted into a dramatic feature by Sixth Sense Productions.

The adaptation will center on the friendship formed between a young struggling actress and an 86-year old diva who is crusading to maintain her Yiddish Theater alive. She battles to keep what might be her last show running during the eight days of Hanukkah in one of New York City's coldest Holiday Seasons.

“This project is an important story about friendship, respect, love and courage, set against the world of the Yiddish Theater. It's a very magical and inspiring true tale that will be a wonderful holiday film for the entire family.  We were so moved by the passion and determination of this woman for her art that we realized this is an important human story that must reach a larger audience and we know that a lot of actresses in Hollywood would love to play this funny and stubborn Yiddish diva," said Producers Richard Harding and Sam Feuer.

A search has begun for a writer and director. Richard Harding and Sam Feuer of Sixth Sense Productions are currently producing THE FIRST GRADER with BBC Films and producer David M. Thompson (Revolutionary Road, The Duchess). The script was written by Ann Peacock (Narnia, Nights in Rodanthe). Sixth Sense has also optioned the memoir THE TRANSLATOR to be adapted by Academy Award nominee Jeffrey Caine (The Constant Gardener, Goldeneye) and Director Luis Mandoki (Message in a Bottle, Angel Eyes, When a Man Loves a Woman).

The deal was negotiated by Ben Reder of Reder and Feig for New Love Films and by Greg S. Bernstein of The Law Offices of Greg S. Bernstein for Sixth Sense.
