Kaddish for Bernie Madoff


A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff

"LA Theatrical Premiere"

This screening will open with the LA theatrical premiere of "Jelly Bean," a short by Nessa Norich.

A hybrid of musical memoir and narrative fantasy, A Kaddish For Bernie Madoff 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.

“If Anna Deavere Smith, Sarah Koenig, and Joey Soloway wrote a self-reflexive musical about finance and religion, it might approach [this] film’s impish, mystical spirit…it’s a blessing.” – The Atlantic

** Followed by an in-person Q&A with director Alicia J. Rose, creator/star Alicia Jo Rabins, and producer Lara Cuddy **
