‘Voices’ sings for a night

Docu aims to qualify for Oscar consideration

“100 Voices: A Journey Home,” a documentary focusing on Jewish and Polish song, faith and tradition, will screen in select theaters nationwide on Sept. 21, for one night only, to qualify for Academy Award consideration.

The film follows the largest group of cantors to return to Poland since World War II as they perform at the site of the Warsaw Ghetto.

The film, produced by NCM Fathom, Mod Three Prods. and Machine Management and directed by Danny Gold and Matthew Asner, also documents their efforts to rebuild the Jewish/Polish connection.

The screenings will include an introductory mini-concert hosted by Cantor Nathan Lam of Los Angeles’ Stephen S. Wise Temple featuring songs from “Fiddler on the Roof,” “Les Miserables,” and “Westside Story.”

Poland, the birthplace of cantorial music, enjoyed a rich Jewish culture until WWII damaged that connection.

“(It) was a truly unprecedented journey, and a deeply moving one for me personally,” said Lam, who also made the trip.
