The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground
Germany/Hungary/Israel/Poland/USA, 2010; 106m

Director Erik Greenberg Anjou (A Cantor’s Tale, 2006) returns with this high-energy documentary about the Grammy Award-winning, New York-based Yiddish roots band, The Klezmatics. Live performances are mixed with soulful interviews with band members as well as other performers including Joshua Nelson, Chava Alberstein and Theodore Bikel. Anjou and crew followed the Klezmatics for over four years capturing the band’s highs, lows, and relentless march forward.

Band members (including me) and filmmaker Erik Anjou will be on hand for a q&a following the 8:30pm screening on January 13.
