The Jewish Federation of the Berkshires presents:
Knosh & Knowledge.

Famous Nathan

Knosh & Knowledge welcomes director, Lloyd Handwerker, grandson of the founder of the iconic Nathan's Famous of Coney Island.  He will host a screening of Famous Nathan, a densely-layered, visually dynamic documentary portrait of the life and times of the world-renowned hot dog stand that is still thriving along the Brooklyn shore.

Famous Nathan, chronicles the personal and public history of Nathan's Famous of Coney Island, the iconic Brooklyn eatery, created in 1916 by the filmmaker's grandfather Nathan Handwerker. Thirty years in the making, this decades-spanning, Coney Island-inspired roller-coaster ride interweaves a kaleidoscopic blend of home movies, archival footage, family photos, never-before-heard audio recording of Nathan, and intimate, sometimes hilarious interviews with family, friends and workers.

Advanced lunch reservations required by Thursday, June 14 before noon by calling 413-442-4360, ext. 10 or federation@jewishberkshires.org
