Synopsis

The remarkable, complex life and artistic legacy of Latin American Jewish performer and activist Isa Kremer is chronicled in this documentary through footage, photos, and interviews with those who knew her. The first woman to bring Yiddish songs to the concert stage and an incredible singer in 24 languages, Kremer is a fascinating figure whose career spans and intertwines with five decades of 20th century history. Applauds Babette Inglehart of Chicago State University, "Here was a person whose life in the 20th century encompassed and reflected some of the greatest and worst moments, tragedies and triumphs of the human soul...and yet she continued...to be true to her beliefs and to continue to create art. If this isn't a lesson about the power of the arts, I don't know what is." This Women's Media Group film is "...a fascinating and compelling story about an inspirational human being whose vibrant life story easily transcends traditional audience definition," (William Anthony, Northwestern University). ~ Carrie Downes, Rovi
