Hava Nagila, The Movie

The song you thought you knew. The story you won’t believe

Op 19 juli 2012 gaat de film Hava Nagila in première op het Joods Filmfestival in San Francisco, V.S..

Engelstalige synopsis [bron]:

Hava Nagila (The Movie) is a documentary romp through the history, mystery and meaning of the great Jewish standard. Featuring interviews with Harry Belafonte, Leonard Nimoy, Connie Francis, Glen Campbell, Regina Spektor and more, the film follows the ubiquitous party song on its fascinating journey from the shtetls of Eastern Europe to the kibbutzim of Palestine to the cul-de-sacs of America. High on fun and entertainment, Hava Nagila (The Movie) is also surprisingly profound, tapping into universal themes about the importance of joy, the power of music and the resilient spirit of a people.
