Fiddler’s Journey To The Big Screen

Dir. Daniel Raim | 90 min
Documentary USA  2022
English  DC Premiere

2021 marked the 50th anniversary of Fiddler on the Roof, which Pauline Kael designated “the most powerful movie musical ever made.” 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 draws on behind-the-scenes footage, archival stills, and original interviews with Jewison, Topol (Tevye), composer John Williams, lyricist Sheldon Harnick, and actresses Rosalind Harris, Michele Marsh, and Neva Small.
