    Fiddler: Miracle of Miracles

    This film tells the story behind one of Broadway’s 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 the 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-20th century America.

    The Fiddle – Der Fidl

    On a lonely slanted roof, a hunched figure plays the fiddle. His soulful music finds its way into the simple homes of the people of Anatevka. But this fiddler did not always sit on the roof. Come to think of it, he didn’t always have a fiddle to play either. Based on Sholem Aleichem’s short story The Fiddle, this is the story of Sholom, the boy that was destined to become the “fiddler on the roof”.
