About:
A deeply intimate portrait of acclaimed violin master, Itzhak Perlman.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Widely considered the greatest living violinist, Itzhak Perlman takes us on a journey through his music and life. Filmmaker Alison Chernick gains privileged access to Perlman with his family, friends, and colleagues. Wheelchair-bound from childhood polio, he recounts stories of overcoming obstacles with his talent and humor. We follow him in eclectic settings, from performing with Billy Joel to visiting his native land, Israel. The film offers a poignant portrait of an artist seeking to bridge the past and the present and, through his students, the future.
