As the Los Angeles Times said, Itzhak is a “love story on so many levels — Perlman’s love of music, of the violin, of life itself!” This coming November, the Alison Chernick documentary on Itzhak Perlman’s life will be shown by the UK Jewish Film Festival at four theaters around the United Kingdom. Check out the showing details below:
November 11, 2018: Manchester, Cineworld Didsbury @ 6pm
November 17, 2018: London, Phoenix Cinema @ 8:45pm
November 21, 2018: Glasgow, Glasgow Film Theatre @ 6:10pm
November 26, 2018: Leeds, MAZCC @ 7:45pm
You can buy the film on Kino Lorber Home Video, which describes the film with: “Alison Chernick’s enchanting documentary Itzhak looks beyond the sublime musician, to see the polio survivor whose parents emigrated from Poland to Israel, the young man who struggled to be taken seriously as a music student when schools saw only his disability.”
It is also available for purchase on Amazon on November 6, 2018. If you are an Amazon Prime member, you can stream the film anytime!
