Smoke filled the Razag ballroom in Crown Heights Sunday as a camera crew filmed the music video for a song that will raise public awareness and gain support for two Yeshiva bochurim imprisoned in Japan.
The “Japan Song,” sung by Jewish music superstar Avraham Fried and singer Shloime Daskal, is a remake of Yaakov Shwekey’s “Tatte” and Abie Rotenberg’s “In A Vinkele.”
Chile-born independent filmmaker Mauricio Arenas is directing the video together with Danny Finkelman and Ilya Lishinsky. The three also collaborated on the Unity song for Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin.
Since April 2008, Israeli bochurim Yoel Zev Goldstein and Yaakov Yosef Greenwald have been incarcerated in a Japanese prison after drugs were found in suitcases that they were carrying for someone else.
Musician Moshe Orenstein was also present at the video shoot. COLlive.com got an exclusive sneak peek into the filming.
