Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness

Friday, July 08, 2011

Filmmaker Joseph Dorman discusses his film “Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness,” a portrait of the great writer who created an entirely new form of literature and whose stories became the basis of the Broadway musical “Fiddler on the Roof.” Sholem Aleichem captured a Jewish world in crisis and on the cusp of profound change, and he helped create a new modern Jewish identity. “Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness” opens July 8 at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas.
