The Ancient Law Comes to the Pickford Film Center

Congregation Beth Israel and the Pickford Film Center are co-presenting The Ancient Law, a 100-year-old silent film, with live music by violinist Alicia Svigals and pianist Donald Sosin.

Baruch, a shtetl rabbi’s son, runs off to Vienna to become an actor. The film portrays how Baruch leaves home against his father’s edict, how Baruch handles the different culture he encounters in Vienna of the 1860s, and how his family must adapt to his transformation.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
