The Judy Levis Markhoff Boca Raton Jewish Film Festival Continues

May 22 @ 5:00 pm

$10

Judy Levis Markhoff Boca Raton Jewish Film Festival Continues to present a wide variety of Jewish-themed films from around the globe, including feature films, shorts, documentaries, and comedies.
Movie: Mamboniks
In the 1930s and ’40s, Americans traveling to Cuba became intoxicated with a steamy new dance step that they brought back to the dance floors of New York City where it became a sensation. At the Palladium Ballroom, “Home of the Mambo!” dancers were dazzled by the Latin big bands of Tito Puente, Machito and Tito Rodriguez. The hot-blooded music swept the nation, and mambo dancing became a pervasive aspect of post-World War II social life. Surprisingly, many of its biggest fanatics were Jewish, a diverse, offbeat group of devotees whose zeal for mambo dancing earned them the hipster nickname: “Mambonik.”

Price: $10.00
