Independent Feature Project, Inc. (Brooklyn, NY 11201-1122)
Alison Chernick (Project Director: January 2017 to present)


Production of a 90-minute documentary about the Israeli-American violinist, conductor, and educator Itzhak Perlman.

If there’s anyone who personifies the resilience,the vision and ultimately the contribution of the Jewish people, it’s Itzhak Perlman. The violin is the chosen instrument of Perlman, the vehicle he has used to overcome his own challenges and express himself to the world. In Perlman and his music, we hear the story of obstacles and survival, we see the comfort of home and family and witness how humor and talent combine with discipline and drive. As we unravel the love story between Itzhak and his wife Toby, we see how their union has shaped his success.
