HAVA NAGILA (THE MOVIE)
Dir. Roberta Grossman (73min, USA, 2011)
Documentary
DC Premiere


It is to music what the bagel is to food. It’s musical shorthand for anything Jewish. This new hit from Roberta Grossman (Blessed Is the Match: The Life and Death of Hannah Senesh) takes you from the shtetls of Eastern Europe to the nightclubs of New York, as she weaves together the history of Hava Nagila, the Jewish standard that transcended its humble origins to become a worldwide phenomenon. Featuring interviews with Harry Belafonte, Connie Francis, Glen Campbell, Leonard Nimoy, Regina Spektor.
