THE KIDDUSH MAN
A film by Yitz Brilliant, with music by Greg Pliska
THE KIDDUSH MAN, a short coming-of-age film, was awarded the National Board of Review Award by the National Board of Review of Motion Pictures, as well as the Reviewers’ Choice Award at the New Jersey Film Festival, and First Place in the NYU Jewish Film Festival. A bored young boy who is in the habit of sneaking out of Shabbat services finds himself regularly confronted by an angry older man. One morning when the man is nowhere to be found, the boy discovers the reason for his anger and connects with the old man on a different and touching level. The tender and moving score is by Greg Pliska and was recorded live at the former Legacy Studios in New York City with a 13-piece orchestra.
