About the Film:

Widely considered one of the world’s greatest living violinists, Itzhak Perlman’s passion for music allowed him to find a platform for personal expression against tremendous circumstances. In this intimate profile of the brilliant and beloved musician, music teacher, and conductor, and his modern Jewish family, Perlman tells us about his childhood as the son of Polish survivors, where his mastery of the violin catapulted a child prodigy with polio from a small neighborhood in Tel Aviv onto the world’s most prominent stages. Never again will you be granted such close access to this musical genius and genuine mensch!
