The 2019 documentary screens online for 48 hours as part of the Rockland JCC Jewish Film Festival

Director: Max Lewkowicz
USA, 2019 • Documentary • English • 90 minutes

The origin story behind one of Broadway’s most beloved musicals, Fiddler on The Roof, and its creative roots in early 1960s New York,
when “tradition” was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving. For the first time, intimate interviews with the show’s creators reveal how he tremendous success and worldwide impact of Fiddler and its subsequent film adaptation is most appropriately viewed through the lens of the social upheaval and change in mid-20thcentury America. Yet, as the film shows,the true wonder of wonders and miracle of
Fiddler is that audiences world-wide and for the last half century claim the story as their own.
