I wanted to inform you of an upcoming event that I felt may be of interest to you. THE KLEZMATICS: ON HOLY GROUND will screen at The Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles on Saturday July 23rd at 2pm.
THE KLEZMATICS: ON HOLY GROUND is a feature length documentary about the Grammy Award-winning, New York-based, klezmer band. The Klezmatics have made numerous television and radio appearances, including PBS’s Great Performances series with Itzhak Perlman as well as on Garrison’s Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion on NPR. In 2006, the band released “Wonder Wheel: Lyrics by Woody Guthrie.” It was their first English language EP and won a Grammy Award for Best World Music. THE KLEZMATICS: ON HOLY GROUND captures the restless, energetic, infectious charm of The Klezmatics live. The members’ on-camera candor reveals the personal struggle behind the music as the band’s members make a living and raise families while maintaining their work as independent artists.
“…combines the best elements of a backstage doc, a concert film and an eye-opening lesson in remixing Jewish culture.”—San Francisco Jewish Film Festival
