  February 27th Deli Man
At last, the deli documentary you’ve been waiting for! Erik Greenberg Anjou’s film explores Jewish
culture as it reflects the heart of a vital ethnic history. In Houston, Texas, third-generation deliman Ziggy Gruber has built arguably the finest delicatessen restaurant in the U.S, Kenny &Ziggy’s.

His story – augmented by the stories of iconic delis such as Katz’s, 2nd Avenue Deli, Nate‘n Al, Carnegie, and the Stage – embodies a tradition indelibly linked to its savory, nostalgic foods.
Learn about the traditions that make deli one of America’s great cuisines.

March 19th The Couple
Martin Landau stars in a story that takes place during World War II in Nazi Germany and
centers on a German couple that works for a wealthy Jewish industrialist who, because of his wealth,
is afforded a chance to “buy” his freedom from the Nazis.

April 30th A Borrowed Identity
The complex interrelated identities of Jewish and Palestinian Israelis—two peoples divided by a
shared culture—is movingly explored in this sharply mounted drama about a young Arab who finds
reasons to “pass” as Jewish.
