Enjoy a live multimedia event! ​Reanimating a silent cinematic classic starring famed Polish actress Pola Negri, The Yellow Ticket  features a new score by violinist Alicia Svigals. Negri embodies a woman’s struggle to overcome adversity in a story of secret identities, heroic measures, and triumphant love. Remarkably progressive for its time, the film explores anti-Semitism, gender bias, and human trafficking in Imperialist Russia.
