"Richly detailed and entertaining!" - The Hollywood Reporter

Hava Nagila (The Movie) is a documentary romp through the history, mystery, and meaning of the great Jewish standard. Funny, deep and unexpected, the film celebrates 150 years of Jewish history and culture and reveals the power of music to bridge cultural divides and bring us together as human beings.

The film premiered as the opening night film at the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival in July 2012. Since then Hava Nagila (The Movie) has been selected as opening or closing night film in 46 festivals! It was released theatrically in 66 cities and is now available on DVD and Netflix.
