THE SONG YOU THOUGHT YOU KNEW.
THE STORY YOU WON’T BELIEVE.
It’s to music what the bagel is to food – a Jewish staple that has transcended its origins and become a worldwide hit. Follow the infectious party song on its fascinating journey from the shtetls of Eastern Europe to the cul-de-sacs of America in this hilarious and surprisingly deep film. HAVA NAGILA (The Movie) takes viewers from Ukraine and Israel to the Catskills, Greenwich Village, Hollywood – and even Bollywood – using the song as a springboard to explore Jewish history and identity and to spotlight the cross-cultural connections that can only be achieved through music.
