Fiddler's Journey to the Big Screen

Fiddler's Journey to the Big Screen

Narrated by Jeff Goldblum and rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, the new documentary Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen captures the humour 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: the film draws on behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen stills as well as original interviews documented over a twelve-year period.  

A must-see for Fiddler fans, this uplifting documentary deftly explores Jewison’s artistry, compassion, and humanity along with his spiritual and creative quest of directing Fiddler on the Roof.
