Silent film with live music accompaniment!
Enlivened by an exciting new score by Alicia Svigals, The Yellow Ticket tells the story of a young Jewish woman (played by the great Pola Negri) who hides her identity in order to study medicine and is coerced into prostitution to pay the rent. The film addresses ethnic and religious discrimination, human trafficking, and poverty in startlingly progressive terms. Live musical accompaniment by Marilyn Lerner (piano) and Alicia Svigals (violin).
