Fiddler's Journey to the Big Screen Trailer

"It's the closest thing to a human voice that their is…. That's worth the price of a ticket." Zeitgeist Films has unveiled an official trailer for a making of documentary called Fiddler's Journey to the Big Screen, about the creation and filming of Fiddler on the Roof (which won three Oscars in 1972). The fall of 2021 marked the 50th anniversary of the film, and this doc is about director Norman Jewison's quest to recreate the lost world of Jewish life in Tsarist Russia while also re-envisioning the beloved stage hit as a wide-screen epic. Featuring rare behind-the-scenes footage, original storyboards, and never-before-seen stills as well as original interviews with Norman Jewison, Topol ("Tevye"), composer John Williams, production designer Robert F. Boyle, critic Kenneth Turan, lyricist Sheldon Harnick, and many others involved. The doc explores how the experience of making Fiddler deepened Jewison as an artist and revived his soul. This played at the Palm Springs Film Festival and opens in theaters starting in April for those who want to watch. Take a look.
