Screening: Poles welcome Cantors home in documentary "100 Voices: The Journey Home; Post-screening discussion with filmmakers and songwriter Charles Fox

Screening of 100 Voices: A Journey Home. It's a beautiful and uplifting story that focuses on modern day cantors (including Cantor Nathan Lam) who band together on a concert tour inside Poland. Visiting the Warsaw ghetto and other central sites they retrace physical streets and bring forth the rich heritage that thrived in pre-war Poland.  

The surprise of the film is that the beautiful Jewish culture their fathers embraced during the golden age of cantors is now being brought back by the Polish people who enjoy the music as much as we do. It's fascinating.

Sunday morning February 6th 11am. Laemmle Town Center 5, Encino, CA with Q&A afterwards with Cantor Nathan Lam, film director/producer Danny Gold, songwriter/composer Charles Fox and LA JEWISH FILM FESTIVAL Exec. Director Hilary Helstein.
