Al Jolson and The Jazz Singer

The Jazz Singer opening night in New York, Oct. 6, 1927.

In 2005, Andrea Oberheiden and Jens Reinke started to research on Al Jolson with the goal to produce a feature-length documentary on the life and times of this great entertainer. As a by-product, they produced a research film called „Al Jolson and The Jazz Singer“ which focuses on the first talkie in the history of films. It had its premiere on July 12, 2009 in Kiel, Germany and was also shown in England, Malta, Australia, and the USA.
