Bagels meet bongos in THE MAMBONIKS, a 90-minute documentary that tells the little-known story of a Jewish love affair with Latin music. Set in Havana, Miami Beach, New York and the Catskill Mountains, this fun, uplifting film features a lovable, somewhat zany collection of dancers from the 1950s.
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 mambo king Pérez Prado, this film explores a mostly unexamined aspect of Jewish life and culture.
