Andrea and Jens have been traveling around the world interviewing people
and filming different sites for their Al Jolson documentary (estimated
launch: early 2017) since May 2006. For their presentation AL JOLSON'S ROOTS AND RELATIVES, the film team shares a preview of their footage at the 2015 Jolson Festival in Bromley, UK which includes interviews
with some of Al’s first and second cousins, gravesite footage of
Jolson's parents in Washington D.C., footage of Al Jolson’s birthplace
in Lithuania, including his original birth certificate, as well as footage
of the remains of the synagogue Jolson attended as a child before
moving to the USA in the late 19th century.
