"Feature-length documentary about the New York-based band.... For 25 years the Grammy Award-winning Klezmatics have been pushing the boundaries of roots music. Founded in klezmer and Yiddish arrangements, the band ... [has collaborated] with Itzhak Perlman (In the fiddler's house), Tony Kushner (The dybbuk), and Chava Alberstein (The well). The band's collaboration with kosher-gospel sensation Joshua Nelson is a cross-denominational celebration of freedom songs. In 2006 the Klezmatics released Wonder wheel, lyrics by Woody Guthrie. Composing original music to newly discovered lyrics by the American icon, it was the band's first English language CD and won a Grammy award for Best World Music. In order to capture the band's highs, lows and committed march forward, Anjou and crew followed the Klezmatics for over three years, from the American heartland to Poland and Hungary, into the recording studio, and onto the concert stage"--Container.
