An uplifting documentary about Josh Dolgin, a Canadian musician whose work combines multiple influences, including traditional Jewish klezmer, jazz, and hip-hop. Ideal for classroom discussions, activities, and assignments around music, identity, Canadian art, and multiculturalism. Describe the multitude of influences that shape your own creative process; what forms of media, art, culture, and tradition inspire you? How do you combine these different influences, and how do they shape your identity? Choose a tradition from your own culture, family or community, and write about how it influenced something else you created. In the documentary, Josh touches upon legal issues he had in regard to music sampling and copyright laws. How do these issues relate to themes explored in the film? What are your own thoughts on sampling and copyright laws? Explain your answer.
