Jewish Genealogy and the Making of Fioretta with Attorney E. Randol Schoenberg

Attorney E. Randol Schoenberg, known for his role in the recovery of Nazi-looted paintings as portrayed in the 2015 film Woman in Gold, will discuss his lifelong passion for genealogy and the making of his new documentary film Fioretta, which has its West Coast Premiere on Thursday October 19th, 2023 at the Newport Beach Film Festival. In Fioretta, Randy drags his teenage son Joey on a roots trip that ends up tracing his family back 500 years to the beginning of the ghetto in Venice, Italy. Grandson of the famous composer Arnold Schoenberg, Randy is renowned for recovering Nazi-looted art, but his greatest achievement might just be reuniting the fractured and scattered shards of his own family. Tickets for Fioretta on Oct 19th at the Newport Beach Film Festival are available at this link: https://nbff23.eventive.org/films/64ee52306f33b8001ff7d2b6
