Is it possible to heal wounds and bitterness passed down through generations?

Joes’ Violin
Tuesday, April 16th | 6:00PM

Recommended for adults and children 6th grade and up. At the end of World War II, Holocaust survivor Joseph Feingold was in a German displaced persons camp awaiting passage to America when he found a violin for sale in a local market. Joe’s Violin charts the 70-year journey of Feingold and this violin from postwar Europe to a middle school in the Bronx, where his donated instrument helps him forge an unlikely friendship with 12-year-old musician Brianna Perez. Through Feingold’s and Perez’s stories, the film explores the value of connecting across generations and the power of music to both heal and inspire. By Kahane Cooperman Nominated, 2017 Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject.
