Saul & Ruby: Life is a Cabaret
About Saul & Ruby: Life is a Cabaret
This feature doc tracks the origins, exploits, and members of the Holocaust Survivor Band over the course of two years as it tours nationally and abroad. It’s a film about life’s beauty, joys, traumas and struggles – and having the courage to live one’s dreams, no matter how old you are.
While the Holocaust is a central part of the back-story, the core of this film is about finding purpose in one’s life; the transcendent power of music; the experience of aging and facing one’s mortality; the impact of surviving war and past traumas; and the power of family and what it means to be Jewish in today’s world.
