Theodore Bikel: In The Shoes of Sholom Aleichem

Synopsis

Portraits of two beloved icons—Sholom Aleichem and Theodore Bikel—are woven together in this enchanting documentary. The two men have much in common: wit, wisdom and talent, all shot through with deep humanity and Yiddishkeit. Bikel, who passed away in July 2015, had a career that spanned more than 150 screen roles (including an Oscar-nominated turn in The Defiant Ones). He was also the foremost interpreter of Sholom Aleichem's work.
