Westchester Jewish Film Festival Opening Night with Q&A and reception 


Filmmaker Alison Chernick (Matthew Barney: No Restraint) takes us on an intimate cinematic journey through the life of Itzhak Perlman, widely considered to be one of the greatest living violinists. With privileged access to Perlman himself, we learn how his passion for music allowed him to find a platform for personal expression and how his profound talent and wry humor have helped him overcome numerous obstacles (including being wheelchair-bound since childhood). We witness his remarkable generosity with students and fellow musicians, as he maintains his devotion to his family and a determination to live a modern Jewish life that honors tradition in a world of changing expectations.
