Hello Canada.
Our first screening in Canada, hosted with the support of the prestigous Toronto Jewish Film Festival. One of the Best Jewish Film Festivals in the world.

Here's the link to the screening:

The film is starting to Travel. Hopefully, after the Northern Neighbour, we'll start touring the world.

Still no one in NYC wants to see the film about saving a culture in NYC.

Will this film travel the entire world, before finding a space in NYC ?

As Gov. Pataki opened the movie by saying : " Hitler tried to destroy a people and their culture" he failed at both.

Hitler failed at killing the people, but he did succeed in killing a culture. At least the Yiddish culture and Yiddish theater in particular.

As we're starting to travel the world- I'm starting to regain my confidence, which I lost a little bit as I was finishing the film.
I'm remembering why I made this film.

Perhaps it's not the most commercial project. But it's a very important project, which I'm very happy I did.
It's one of those small, labor of love projects, which remind you that there's stuff worth fighting for.

Onward with the battle to make the world a better place.

Dan
