The Muses of Bashevis Singer (HAMUZOT SHE BASHEVIS ZINGER) Israel / 2015

Isaac Bashevis Singer, Nobel Prize winner and famous Yiddish writer, was hungry for both fame and women. He combined these passions, employing numerous women to translate his works into other languages, and engaging in romances with nearly all of them. This surprising and enlightening documentary reveals the real Singer, as well as the previously-unknown women who brought his works to the world. A hit on the Jewish Film Festival circuit following its premiere at the Haifa Film Festival.
