Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen – Twin Cities Jewish Film Festival

Fiddler’s Journey to the Big Screen
November 17, 2022
Capp Center St. Paul • 6:30 PM

With great affection, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Daniel Raim captures the humor and drama of director Norman Jewison’s quest to re-envision the beloved stage hit Fiddler on the Roof as a wide-screen epic. At its heart, this delightful documentary becomes an exploration of how the experience of making Fiddler deepens Jewison as an artist and revives his soul.

Daniel Raim puts us in the director’s chair, drawing on a ton of behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen stills, as well as original interviews with Jewison, star Chaim Topol, Academy Award-winning composer John Williams, lyricist Sheldon Harnick, and the actresses who played Tevye’s daughters, Rosalind Harris, Michele Marsh, and Neva Small.

Followed by Q&A with Neva Small (“Chava” in the original Fiddler on the Roof film) In-Person

*VIP Festival Pass holders are invited to join us at the Capp Center St. Paul at 5 PM for a special pre-screening event with Neva Small. Includes refreshments, meet & greet, sing-along, and photo/autograph opportunity.
