A riveting portrait of the great writer whose stories became the basis of the Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof. Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness tells the tale of the rebellious genius who created an entirely new literature.  Plumbing the depths of a Jewish world locked in crisis and on the cusp of profound change, he captured that world with brilliant humor.  Sholem Aleichem was not just a witness to the creation of a new modern Jewish identity, but one of the very men who forged it. Sholem Aleichem: Laughing in the Darkness Opens at the Lincoln Plaza Cinema in New York on July 8th.

Jewcy is very proud to premiere the trailer to this wonderful film.
