FIDDLER’S JOURNEY TO THE BIG SCREEN
Q&A following the screening with Director Daniel Raim, Producer Sasha Berman, Co-Writer Michael Sragow, and actress Michèle Marsh, who played Hodel in Fiddler On The Roof. Moderated by the Director of the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival, Hilary Helstein.
Narrated by Jeff Goldblum, FIDDLER’S JOURNEY TO THE BIG SCREEN 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 rare behind-the-scenes footage as well as original interviews with Norman Jewison, Topol (Tevye), composer John Williams, production designer Robert F. Boyle, film critic Kenneth Turan, lyricist Sheldon Harnick, and actresses Rosalind Harris, Michèle Marsh, and Neva Small (Tevye’s daughters).
This special premiere is made possible with generous support from Jewish Story Partners and the Consulate General of Israel in Los Angeles.
Opening in theaters May 6 in Los Angeles
