Fifty years after the life-affirming tale of Tevye the milkman leaped from stage to screen, the beloved movie’s complete “making-of” odyssey is now told. Reimagining the Broadway hit into a widescreen epic is visionary director Norman Jewison for whom the project proves deeply personal and transformative. Rare on-location footage and newly found stills put viewers in the director’s chair, while the filmmakers, key collaborators, and cast-including lead actor Topol, composer John Williams, and production designer Robert F. Boyle-offer surprising production anecdotes. Narrated by Jeff Goldblum, this engrossing insider account from Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker Daniel Raim captures the triumphs and trials of the creative process and Fiddler’s unparalleled impact as a cultural force.
