Description

Annually, Krakow, Poland hosts the biggest celebration of Jewish Culture in the world. Jewish performing acts play to a largely gentile audience a mere forty miles from Auschwitz. Follow Jewish writer Robin Hemley as he eats and dances his way through the festival.  Hemley interviews the festival’s founder, a well-known poet, an artist who photographs desecrated Jewish tombstones, a sociologist, an bitter cab driver, a famous cantor, and festival-goers. While he first feels the festival is largely motivated by collective guilt and little else, his appreciation and understanding grow as he navigates the murky waters of authenticity and ownership. A must see!
