    Eleven year old David Wiseman is mad about cricket but no good at it. He has all the kit but none of the skill, and he's a laughing stock at school. So when a Jamaican family moves in next door and builds a cricket net in the back garden, David is in seventh heaven. But this is 1960's England, and when the neighbors start to make life difficult for the new arrivals, David's family is caught in the middle, and he has to choose between fitting in and standing up for the new friends who have turned his world upside down.

    A powerful, funny, moving and important film that follows the legendary Yiddish diva Zypora Spaisman, who is considered by many the woman who has kept Yiddish Theater alive in the US. The film has the last filmed interview with Yiddish superstar Seymour Rechzeit, as well as rare footage of the Second Avenue deli, and it's owner. The film also has amazing footage of the Hebrew actors union, just before all the rare archival footage was discovered and moved out of the rotting basement. This is a masterpiece documentary with footage that will make anyone both laugh and cry in every scene. Written by Anonymous
