Los Angeles Premiere (May 14, 2008)

REFUSENIK premiered in Los Angeles as part of the LA Jewish Film Festival, at the Laemmle Music Hall. Speakers included Zev Yaroslavksy and Si Frumkin — two famous Angelenos who got their start as activists in the Soviet Jewry movement. The dynamic duo reminisced about some of their most notorious moments– including getting arrested at a demonstration at the Shrine Auditorium. Great quote of the evening from Si Frumkin: “I”m probably the only person who’s spent time in a jail cell with Zev Yaroslavsky.”

Also in attendance: Producer Stephanie Howard, Editors Allan Holzman and Tchavdar Georgiev, Composer Charles Bernstein, Cinematographer Sarah Levy, and Korelan Matteson, Production Coordinator.
