It has been covered by everyone from Bob Dylan to Elvis; it’s one of the most infectious party songs ever written in any language; it’s a Jewish staple that has transcended its origins and become a worldwide hit on the level of the bagel—it’s Hava Nagila! This rollicking film follows the song’s journey from the shtetls of Ukraine to Israel to the Catskills, Greenwich Village, Hollywood, Bollywood, and beyond, using it to explore Jewish history and identity and illuminate cross-cultural connections that only music can achieve. Hava Nagila (The Movie) features interviews with Harry Belafonte, Connie Francis, Glen Campbell, Leonard Nimoy, Regina Spektor, and many others.
