In response to our SOLD OUT regular season, we are screening two films as part of our new Summer Sneaks! Cool Films for Hot Days. We kick things off on June 16th with a sneak preview of Hava Nagila (the Movie), the opening film for this year’s San Francisco Jewish Film Festival. It’s a rollicking romp across the globe that traces the fascinating history of the song along the way. Then in July, we present a sneak preview of Fill the Void, winner of this year’s Israeli Academy Award for Best Picture.

Follow this infectious party song on its fascinating journey from the shtetls of Eastern Europe to the cul-de-sacs of America and for the first time, the canyons and mesas of Santa Fe. more…
