Jason goes to SVJFF--November 12

More overdue data dumps. I missed more than half of Jewfest South due to Holehead, but the ones I saw were pretty great, starting with Potsdam Revisited: Overture to the Cold War. The film was a short documentary THE RIFLEMAN'S VIOLIN about 19-year-old GI Stuart Canin who went off to WWII and ended up playing a private concert at the Potsdam conference for Harry Truman, Winston Churchill, and Josef Stalin. But the real treat of the night was 90-year old Canin and pianist Hélène Wickett recreating their concert for the audience at the Oshman Family JCC. Awesome!
