ANGELIKA’S NOTE

FIDDLER: A MIRACLE OF MIRACLES is the first in-depth documentary film that chronicles the story of Fiddler On The Roof, exploring the unexpected richness of its themes as well as its long reach across time and cultures, rated an impeccable 98% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Fiddler On The Roof is the story of all immigrants and refugees trying to escape persecution in their homeland, of the Jewish immigrant coming to America, of the fraying of tradition, generational tension, and the loss of roots. It is a universal tale of fathers and daughters, mothers and sons trying to maintain some order in their lives amidst the rapid changes that every generation must forge. It is a spectacle that is at once awe-inspiring and accessible, a cultural landmark like no other. And more than ever, it is relevant to today. And yet, the story of how this treasure came to be and the significance it has had on our culture has never been told on film. This is the story of Fiddler On The Roof.
