AJFF: A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff
October 2 @ 12:00 am - October 10 @ 11:30 pm$9.99 – $365
An artistic excommunication set in 2008, A Kaddish For Bernie Madoff is a mystical meta-musical about the greatest financial fraud in history. A hybrid of musical memoir and narrative fantasy, the film tells the story of Madoff and the system that allowed him to function for decades through the eyes of musician/poet Alicia Jo Rabins, who watches the financial crash from her 9th floor studio in an abandoned office building on Wall Street. Fueled by her growing obsession, real-life interviews transform into music videos, ancient spiritual texts become fevered fantasies of synchronized swimming, and a vivid, vulnerable work of art is born from the unique perspective of an artist watching the global financial collapse up close.
Free live Q&A with director Alicia J. Rose, star/creator Alicia Jo Rabins, and producer Lara Cuddy included in event ticket.
