Jewish Film Festival Sweeps through Nashville

Posted: Nov. 13th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

The Movie Ė literally Ė opened Nashville's 2012 Jewish Film Festival before passing on the torch to other Jewish films and following on the heels of a reception with renowned film director Roberta Grossman. The festival is set to continue until November 15th.

Maybe this sounds like the punchline to a Borscht Belt comedianís gag, but no: The opening night film of the 2012 Nashville Jewish Film Festival is indeed Hava Nagila (The Movie). Roberta Grossmanís audience-pleasing doc traces the history of the bar-mitzvah staple, from the tuneís Ukrainian origins to the repertoires of Harry Belafonte and Connie Francis. Studded with unusual celebrity appearances (Leonard Nimoy, Rabbi Yisreal Friedman Ö Chubby Checker?), itís a fittingly merry kickoff for a fest thatís as much about food and fun as film.
