Streit's: Matzo and the American Dream, a New Documentary About the Former LES Matzo Factory

Streit's: Matzo and the American Dream is a new documentary from filmmaker Michael Levine which uncovers a rich history behind the former Lower East Side matzo factory, only recently sold to be replaced by condominiums after 90 years in the neighborhood.

Streit’s Matzo and the American Dream is a story of tradition, of resistance and resilience, and a celebration of a family whose commitment to their heritage and to their employees is inspiring proof that the family that bakes together, stays together.

The film is premiering next week at Film Forum, with six showings a day from April 20 to April 26, 2016.
