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, original storyboards, and never-before-seen stills. The film explores how the experience of making “Fiddler” deepens Jewison as an artist and revives his soul.

(This film is part of the 18th ANNUAL Karen Schneider Jewish Film Festival of Flint. Tickets can be purchased at the door.)
