EXCLUSIVE: Here’s your first trailer for Jeff Goldblum-narrated documentary Fiddler’s Journey To The Big Screen, about Norman Jewison’s classic musical Fiddler On The Roof.
The movie charts the story behind 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.
Daniel Raim (Harold and Lillian: A Hollywood Love Story) directs the film, drawing on behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen stills as well as original interviews with Jewison, Topol, composer John Williams, production designer Robert F. Boyle, film critic Kenneth Turan, lyricist Sheldon Harnick, and actresses Rosalind Harris, Michele Marsh, and Neva Small.
Jewison’s musical was released in the U.S. 50 years ago and went on to score three Oscar wins and eight nominations.
Raim is director, co-writer, and producer with Sasha Berman also producing. Co-producer and co-writer is Michael Sragow.
