DREAMING OF A
JEWISH CHRISTMAS

Director: Larry Weinstein, Canada, 2017, 52 min.

DREAMING


Set entirely in a Chinese restaurant, this  is 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 Christmas to be the perfect holiday in which to imagine a better world, for at least one day a year, make us believe in it.
