Directed and produced by Kahane Cooperman and nominated for the ‘Best Documentary, Short Subject’ category, the 24 minute work follows the story of 91-year-old Holocaust survivor Joe Feingold after he donates his treasured violin to a local instrument drive in New York - ultimately changing the life of a schoolgirl from one of the nation’s poorest neighborhoods.
Having premiered at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival and the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, the work was awarded the ‘Audience Prize’ at the 2016 Montclair, Milwaukee and Nantucket Film Festivals - and the ‘Grand Jury Prize’ at the 2016 Lighthouse International Film Festival.
