Neither Egg, Nor Cream: The Extraordinary Histories of Seltzer and the Egg Cream
Premiere NY Screening of Short Film & Book Talk.

Join us for a NY Premier screening of the short documentary Egg Cream (Peter Miller, 2017) and a celebration of the publication of Seltzertopia: The Extraordinary Story of an Ordinary Drink (Barry Joseph, 2018). Featuring a talk with Peter Miller and Barry Joseph and followed by tastings of competing recipes of the Egg Cream.

Featuring photos from the AJHS archive, Egg Cream is a 15-minute short about the histories, various recipes, and enduring meanings of the Egg Cream, a chocolate soda drink born on the Jewish Lower East Side of New York City. Seltzertopia: The Extraordinary Story of an Ordinary Drink is the story of the modern pioneers of seltzer, loyal to and passionate about the crisply carbonated, who wrangle centuries-old machines to fill siphons with sparkling water, keeping alive a craft that is centuries old. Using their stories to consider the social, cultural, and economic impacts of seltzer, Seltzertopia tackles the question: What is it about this simplest of concoctions that has allowed it to make a difference to so many people, in such different ways? Based on more than fourteen years of original research and interviews, the extraordinary story of this ordinary drink can finally be told.
