STREIT’S: MATZO AND THE AMERICAN DREAM DOCUMENTARY

NAME OF FILM: STREIT’S: MATZO AND THE AMERICAN DREAM DOCUMENTARY

DIRECTOR(S): Michael Levine

GENRE: Documentary Film

SYNOPSIS: On New York’s rapidly gentrifying Lower East Side sits the Streit’s Matzo factory. When its doors opened in 1925, it sat at the heart of the nation’s largest Jewish immigrant community. Today, in its fifth generation of family ownership, it remains as the last family owned matzo factory in America. Streit’s: Matzo and the American Dream tells the story of the factory, of the family, of its workers, of its place in the rich history of the Lower East Side and America. It is a story of tradition, of resilience and resistance, of the perseverance of the Jewish people, and of immigrants of all backgrounds who have found home in the Lower East Side, behind the doors of Streit’s, or in the matzo they bake.
