To the Other Shore synopsis
The other beach tells the story of a small but influential group of Jewishintellectuals who emigrated to the United States from the Russian Empire between 1881 and 1920 in the early - era of "mass immigration". This group of Jewishintellectuals, many of whom grew up in Orthodox homes, left their Jewish identity, absorbed radical political theories of Russia in the 19th century, and brought these theories with them to America. When they became leaders of the labor movement in the United States and wrote about the radical Yiddish, Russian and English press, they generally retained the secular Russian cultural identity they had adopted in their homeland, as well as their commitment to socialist theories.
This group includes Abraham Kahan, an old editor of The Daily Daily Forward and one of the most influential Jews in America during the first half of this century. Maurice Hillchett, a founding figure of the American Socialist Movement; Michael Zamtkin and his wife, Adele Kane, both journalists and labor activists in the first decades of this century; and Chet Chetlowski, one of the most important modern Yiddish writers.
These immigrants were part of a generation of Jewishintellectuals who preceded well-known intellectuals in New York in the late 1920s and 1930s - the group that was chronicled in the world of Arving Hue in our fathers. In the film "The Other Beach," Stephen Cassidy offers a wide and clear picture of the first Jewish immigrant intellectuals in America and the Russian cultural and political creeds that inspired them.
