What does every Jewish film festival need? A spirited, signature theme song. And what better than what is practically Jewish anthem: Hava Nagila! But wait, not only is your ticket admission to see and hear it played in all varieties of ways, by all manners of entertainers, but also to take an historic journey of sadness and joy through time and place, as the film traces the odyssey of the song. From the shtetels of the Ukraine, through the kibbutzim of Palestine, and the triumph of Israel's statehood, all the way to America's bar and bat mitzvah celebrations and wedding halls and country clubsand you don't even have to be Jewish. Here's a film to come to, and take up its title words and "REJOICE"!
