A Man From Munkacs: Gypsy Klezmer, directed by famed klezmer musician Yale Strom, explores the symbiotic relationship between the Rom and Jews who lived together before and after World War II in the Carpathian region. Whenever there was a Jewish celebration, most of the klezmer musicians were not Jews but Rom. In fact, the Rom had played with and for Jews for so many years that some of them spoke a fluent Yiddish. The film examines how this persecuted group (the Rom) saved Jewish folk music until it could be returned to the Jewish people. Local Klezmer Musician Jack Falk attends the evening film for a Question & Answer session afterwards.
