Sperber July Film Club
Film and Director Interview: "Fiddler: Miracle of Miracles"
Join us for our monthly virtual Sperber Film Club, where we discuss Jewish-themed films with our Sperber Librarian, Lisa Silverman.
This month we will be discussing the new documentary feature film, Fiddler: A Miracle of Miracles (click here to watch the trailer), in conversation with Director Max Lewkowicz.
View the film prior to the session, via a unique code on Vimeo (detailed instructions are included in your confirmation email).
Fiddler is the first in-depth documentary film that chronicles the life and themes of this iconic offering of American culture. The goal of this documentary is to understand why the story of Tevye the milkman is reborn again and again as a beloved entertainment and cultural touchstone the world over.
Please keep in mind that the code will be active for one week prior to the discussion, from July 8th - 15th.
Please do not share your code with others, as it is unfair to those who have paid for this session, and there is a limitation on viewership.
ALL SALES FINAL. NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES.
