Chava’s “Foreign Letters”

ChavaPostFrom Tzivi’s Guide to the 2013 CFIC:

“Noa Rotstein, making her feature film debut, stars as ‘Ellie’ in Foreign Letters. Ellie is an Israeli girl who moves to Connecticut at age 12… The title comes from a Chava Alberstein album (also called Foreign Letters) which features songs in multiple languages (Hebrew, Yiddish, and English). Several songs from this album (which I also own) are included on the soundtrack. It’s a perfect choice!”

Opening Lyrics for Foreign Letters (written by Chava Alberstein)

How do you pronounce your name in your country? Can you write it down for me? I love foreign letters. They are like drawings. They are like secret signs. From Magic places. From Different worlds…
