Share this event:

In New York's Catskill Mountains, aka the Borscht Belt, Jewish immigrants transformed lush farmland into the 20th century's largest resort complex. Those Catskill hotels and bungalow colonies provided the setting for a remarkable group of young Jewish-American comedians to hone their craft and become worldwide legends  the generation that includes the likes of Jerry Lewis, Sid Caesar, Jackie Mason, Mort Sahl, and Jerry Stiller, all of whom make appearances in the film, telling jokes and telling their stories. Robert Klein narrates.

The 14th annual Northern Virginia Jewish Film Festival is hosted by the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia. Opening night at the JCCNV includes dinner, film and program. Advance tickets $39 through March 13; tickets are $45 starting March 14. Seating is determined by date of purchase (last year's opening night event sold out).

Festival films will be shown March 22-30 at Angelika Film Center & Café at Mosaic.
