Directed by Kahane Cooperman


In this award-winning documentary short, a 91-year-old Holocaust survivor donates his violin of 70 years to a local instrument drive, changing the life of a 12-year-old school girl from America’s poorest congressional district, and unexpectedly, his own.

Joe’s Violin poignantly illuminates how the power of music brings light in the darkest of times and how a small act can have a great impact.
