About the film:

Rebbe Mendel Nehemiah Persoff is a single father who teaches the Talmud, a sacred text of Judaism, to the boys of his small Polish town. Behind closed doors, he also instructs his daughter, Yentl Barbra Streisand, despite the fact that girls are forbidden to study religious scripture. When Yentl's father dies, she still has a strong desire to learn about her faith -- so she disguises herself as a man, enrolls in a religious school, and unexpectedly finds love along the way.

1983 . 134 minutes

Bechdel Tested is executive produced by Erica Shiner and co-produced by Michal Stein.
