Famous Nathan Screening and Q&A
Apr 28, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| $10.00
A personal history of the much-loved Brooklyn landmark, Nathan’s Famous was created by the filmmaker’s grandfather Nathan Handwerker. Thirty years in the making, Famous Nathan creatively interweaves decades-spanning archival film and video, family home movies, a Coney Island-inspired score, never-before-heard audio from Nathan recounting his immigrant experience and intimate, sometimes hilarious interviews with family and workers reflecting on hard work, fighting and food.
A film about labor, family, immigration, and yes, food, Famous Nathan is a vivid testament to a true American success story and the fighting spirit of a consummate New York family-run business.
