Der Gelbe Schein (or, The Yellow Ticket) is a 1918 German film starring silent era icon Pola Negri, who plays a woman from the Jewish ghetto of Warsaw who is sucked into Russian sex trafficking. And people think everyone was prude and innocent in the olden days. Svigals, from the Klezmatics, who has penned works for Itzhak Perlman and the Kronos Quartet, has composed a lush score inspired by klezmer, Eastern European folk, Bart�k and caf� music. She will be joined by pianist Marilyn Lerner in playing along to the movie.
