The Cello has brought me some pretty amazing opportunities. In July of 2019 I shared on the ‘gram that my cello and I were lucky enough to be asked to be in an independent film, called “A Kaddish For Bernie Maddof“. I had 2 roles: Cello playing aging wife and mother who lost her inheritance to Bernie Maddof, and a cello playing legal secretary. The common thread here is “cello playing”.
The film was written and produced by Alicia Jo Rabbins, directed by Alicia J. Rose, and is “A mystical meta-musical feature film about the greatest financial fraud in history.” IMHO, it’s awesomely unique, and thought provoking.
It was such a great experience to be a part of, and even more amazing to see the beautiful final product. The film won the Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature @ the Ashland Film Festival, and just finished screening at the Washington DC Jewish Film Festival. Keep an eye on the film’s Website (link above) for updates on the next screening, and keep your eyes open for me and my cello!
