Directed by: Alison Chernick


Film Synopsis: A look at the life, work and religious heritage of violinist Itzhak Perlman. Alison Chernick’s enchanting documentary looks beyond the sublime musician, to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel and the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability. Itzhak is a portrait of musical virtuosity seamlessly enclosed in warmth, humor, and above all, love.
