The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground

Directed by Erik Anjou

USA | 90 minutes | 2010

Director Erik Greenberg Anjou (MJFF 2006 film A Cantor’s Tale) returns with this high-energy documentary about the Grammy Award-winning, New York-based superstar klezmer band, The Klezmatics. Mesmerizing performances are mixed with soulful interviews with band members as well as other performers including Joshua Nelson, Chava Alberstein, and David Krakauer. Their restless energy, infectious concert performances, and on-camera candor make for a rousing behind-the-scenes documentary covering four up-and-down years in the life of the band. The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground combines the best elements of a backstage doc, a concert film and an eye-opening lesson in remixing Jewish culture.
