Itzhak

 

ITZHAK showcases the life and music of Itzhak Perlman, widely considered one of the world’s greatest living violinists. It explores the ways in which Perlman’s passion for music allowed him to find a platform for personal expression against tremendous circumstances.

If there’s anyone who personifies the resilience, the vision and, ultimately, the contribution of the Jewish people, it’s musical master Itzhak Perlman. The violin is his chosen instrument, the vehicle Perlman uses to overcome his own challenges and express himself to the world. Through the man and his music, hear a story of obstacles and survival, trace the path of the Jewish people from the chaos of Europe to the promise of Israel, see the comfort of home and family, and witness how humor and talent combine with discipline and drive in filmmaker Alison Chernick’s Itzhak.

From his days as a boy with prodigious talent to today, ITZHAK gives the world a glimpse of the world class virtuoso’s private life, his performance and teaching abilities, along with his indomitable patience to achieve perfection.
