BLUER THAN BLUE An Illustrated Song Cycle
A mother, singing to her son, expresses the determination, loyalty and bravery of families and communities during the hardest of times. In the voice of Yiddish children, singers, and poets, she captures the events and emotions of her surroundings, and believes in a more beautiful world for her children, one with a clear blue sky. A journey of Yiddish songs written from 1939 to 1945, this song cycle is accompanied by a visual flurry of light, paper and the written word, and reveals the hope and the perseverance of creativity and art through the worst conditions.
