Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas

CTC Documentary

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

“A very sweet, engaging and celebratory documentary with heft and beauty.” — The Globe and Mail

An offbeat, irreverent musical documentary that tells the story of a group of Jewish songwriters, including Irving Berlin, Mel Tormé, Jay Livingston, Ray Evans, Gloria Shayne Baker and Johnny Marks, who wrote the soundtrack to Christianity’s most musical holiday. It’s an amazing tale of immigrant outsiders who became irreplaceable players in pop culture’s mainstream – a generation of songwriters who found in Christmas the perfect holiday in which to imagine a better world, and for at least one day a year, make us believe.
