"Creating a Character: The Moni Yakim Legacy" — WORLD PREMIERE

What do Jessica Chastain, Viola Davis, Patti LuPone and Alex Sharp have in common? They are but a few of the extraordinary actors who have studied under Moni Yakim at Juilliard, America’s greatest performing arts school. Yakim, who was born in Jerusalem and began his career in the Massach Theater at age 14, left for Paris after years of performing throughout Israel and his military service. With interviews with Laura Linney, Anthony Mackie and Kevin Kline, this compelling portrait of the master teacher—the sole remaining founder of the school’s legendary Drama Division—takes us inside the drama classes where Moni and his wife Mina pour their love and passion into preparing the next generation of actors for the spotlight.

Expected to Attend: Producers Kali Wilder, Boaz Yakin, Alma Har'el; film subjects Moni Yakim, and Alex Sharp present for Q&A, also in attendance editor James Codoyannis; associate producer Julie Mond; and film subject Mina Yakim
