Notice biographique / histoire administrative
Ina Fichman has made several films, including Towards a Promised Land/Vers une Terre Promise (1998), Moise, Longshots, Work, Study, & Travel and Moving Mountains (about a Yiddish theatre trip to Russia). She has also left her mark on TV, as she has worked on many children's TV shows, such as Vampire High. Her husband, Howard Goldberg, is a film producer (La Fete Production) and has worked with her on many of her films. She is a native of Montreal. Towards a Promised Land (abbrev.: TPL) : The film traces the evolution of Quebec's Jewish community within the framework of its relationship to the francophone majority. Together, leading Quebec artists, writers and cultural figures examine the elements shared by their sister communities while charting efforts at "rapprochement." The film includes footage from many Jewish community and wider community events and many rare interviews. The Jewish presence in the Gaspé (Levine family) is also documented. All of these themes are reflected in greater detail in the film footage that makes up the collection
