Fiddler’s Journey To The Big Screen (online film)
Last year was the 50th anniversary of the film version of Fiddler on the Roof. Narrated by Jeff Goldblum, this documentary captures the humor and drama of director Norman Jewison’s quest to recreate the lost world of Jewish life in Tsarist Russia and re-envision the beloved stage hit as a wide-screen epic. Oscar-nominated filmmaker Daniel Raim puts us in the director’s chair and in Jewison’s heart and mind, drawing on behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen stills as well as original interviews with Jewison, Topol (Tevye), composer John Williams, and more. The film explores how the experience of making Fiddler deepened Jewison as an artist and revived his soul.
This 88-minute film is presented the opening night of the Silicon Valley Jewish Film Festival (SVJFF). The film is available October 23, 5pm PDT, for 72 hours.
