The "Cinderella movie of the Season!" WINNER! "BEST FILM" Audience Favorite Awards at ALL 11 of its Competitive Festivals to date (in its first 6 months on the Festival Circuit)--including the 2019 Los Angeles, Tel Aviv, Palm Beach, Pittsburgh, Charlotte, New Jersey, Honolulu, New Hampshire, Rockland Co., Winnipeg and Dayton Jewish Film Festivals--and currently Officially Selected to 42 Festivals total as of 8-11-19 (including 16 Opening Nights, 9 Closing Nights & 2 Centerpiece Selections). TOVAH FELDSHUH recreates 100 years of Jewish history playing 45 different characters, including Ben-Gurion, Moshe Dayan, Henry Kissinger, Holocaust survivors, Israeli soldiers and, of course, GOLDA MEIR herself, in one of the greatest acting performances of the last 50 years--now captured on film for all time, in this BRAND NEW MOVIE here in 2019, "GOLDA'S BALCONY, THE FILM." Never has the whole Jewish century been dramatized with such heart, dazzle, and sheer, jaw-dropping artistry. See for yourself why this 85-minute Feature film has become the "Cinderella movie of the Festival Season." This final masterpiece by the author of “The Miracle Worker,” William Gibson, is a gorgeous motion picture made from a rare, multi-camera shoot made during the play’s original run—but ONLY UNEARTHED in January 2019, and assembled into a new but absolutely riveting film, making its World and national premieres in Film Festivals across N. and S. America, Europe and Israel in calendar years 2019-20. Categorically 'a dramatic feature at 86 minutes in length', "Golda’s Balcony, The Film” charts the rise of Golda Meir from Russian schoolgirl to Prime Minister of Israel, and is one of the most thrilling and amazing stories of the 20th Century. In this new film, Meir's life has been transformed into a cinematic event of overwhelming power and inspirational triumph. As a play on Broadway and Off, the work sold out over 500 performances, becoming not only the longest-running, one-woman show in Broadway history, but earning accolades from the likes of ELIE WIESEL (“Tovah Feldshuh’s performance is brilliant. Everyone should see 'Golda’s Balcony,' it’s a miracle!”), former NATIONAL DIRECTOR of the Anti-Defamation League ABE FOXMAN (“I came, I saw, I was conquered! 'Golda’s Balcony' brings Golda, Israel and the Jewish people to life. Everyone should see it!”), and a majority of national Jewish leaders and theatre critics.
