The Epstein Brothers–Max, Willie, and Julius–are legends in the world of klezmer music, a Jewish musical tradition originating in Eastern Europe. The Epsteins are natural performers, and their sense of life, music, and family as they tour through places they love–from Poland to Brooklyn to Florida–is as life affirming and intoxicating as the joyous music they play. This documentary was the culmination of several years of documenting the group, who received the prestigious National Heritage Fellowship from the U.S. National Endowment for the Arts in 1998. Discussion with Pete Sokolow and Joel Rubin (UVA) , moderated by Asher Biemann

Supported by Congregation Beth Israel, UVA Jewish Studies Program, and the UVA McIntire Department of Music
