    Greenville Jewish Film Festival presents: Summerfest 2022

    August 28@4:00 pm

    $25

    The Greenville Jewish Film Festival is pleased to announce the 3rd annual SummerFest movie event on August 28, 2022.

    We will host a reception and screening of, “THE MAMBONIKS”, a 90 minute documentary where bagels meet bongos! This energetic film tells the little-known story of the Jewish love affair with Latin music.  Set in New York, Havana, Miami Beach, and the Catskill Mountains, this uplifting film features a lovable, somewhat zany collection of dancers from the 1950’s. 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 the mambo king Perez Prado, this film explores a mostly unexamined aspect of Jewish life and culture. However, at its heart, the film is about much more: it’s about  the power of music and dance to bring people together.
