Event Details

Description

Bagels meet bongos in "The Mamboniks." This feature-length documentary was filmed in Miami and South Florida with a cast of colorful locals. It's the first film tho tell the little-known story of the Jewish love affair with Latin music. Set in Havana, Miami Beach, New York and the Catskill Mountains, this uplifting film features a lovable, somewhat zany collection of dancers from the 1950s. Now retired yet still dancing in Florida, they share their passion for the mambo, the hot dance from Cuba that became a world-wide sensation. With an infectious soundtrack including Tito Puente, Celia Cruz and mambo king Pérez Prado, this film explores a mostly unexamined aspect of Jewish life and culture in the post-WWII years.
