Peter Rosen, director. 2011.

Jascha Heifetz, “the violinist whose name for more than half a century was synonymous with perfection of technique and musicianship” (New York Times), is the towering subject of Peter Rosen’s film biography God’s Fiddler. Rosen’s collection of rare footage sheds light on the enigmatic virtuoso, who remained aloof despite decades spent in the international spotlight.
