2021 is the 100th year anniversary of the theatrical release of The Golem, the Jewish Frankenstein, a film that not only directly inspired many moments of the Boris Karloff Frankenstein film, but also helped create one of the most well known Jewish fables about the occult and about the dark shadows that hide some of the most profound Jewish ideas.
To celebrate this anniversary, Reboot is cutting up the Golem film into eight parts, creating an episodic series with new scores by renowned musicians and hosted by preeminent scholars, composers and film historians discussing the significance of the film and its music and taking a deep dive into the Jewish history, occultism, Hollywoodism, traditions and astrology.
Hosts: John K Bucher and Torri Yates-Orr
Commentary from guests including: Kate Scelsa, Maya Barzilai, Ken Goldberg, Jeremiah Lockwood, Justin Sledge, Mitch Horowitz, Riva Lehrer and Ina Archer.
Coming October 28 – stay up to date about the launch via the form below!
