Movie Info

Polish composer Leopold Kozlowski tells his stories in this documentary. Klezmer music consists of those folk tunes most frequently heard at Jewish weddings; it is experience a revival in America and Europe. Kozlowski knows a lot about this genre. He also knows a lot about Jewish customs in his native Poland. On film he spins his old yarns about life during the Nazi occupation. He speaks of the resistance and of life in the concentration camps. The one thing lacking in the documentary are sufficient examples of the composer's music.
