Winner, Audience Award at the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival. Celebrating “the most powerful movie musical ever made” (Pauline Kael), Academy Award–nominated filmmaker Daniel Raim captures the humor and drama of the iconic musical Fiddler on the Roof, director Norman Jewison’s brilliant recreation of the lost world of Jewish life in Eastern Europe. Narrated by Jeff Goldblum and drawing on behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen stills, along with original interviews with Jewison and his key collaborators, Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen illuminates the story behind the making of Fiddler, as well as its impact on both the filmmaker and audiences around the world.
