Last February, two funny and nostalgic movies were shown in a limited release for one week in a few locations in Florida and California.
The first film, Welcome to Kutsher's, was released on June 23 on DVD and on Video on Demand. Now, the second film, Deli Man, has also been released on DVD and VOD.
Before their debut in February, both films were widely acclaimed when shown at Jewish Film Festivals around the world. We wrote about Welcome to Kutsher's on July 1. Now we're happy to share information and a sneak peek trailer of Deli Man.
Deli Man is a documentary film produced and directed by Erik Greenberg Anjou; the third work in his trilogy about Jewish culture. The celebrated preceding films are “A Cantor’s Tale” and “The Klezmatics - On Holy Ground,” which have to date screened at more than two hundred international film festivals and have been broadcast in the U.S., Israel, Canada and Poland.
The principal guide of Deli Man is the effusive and charming Ziggy Gruber, a third-generation delicatessen man, owner and maven (as well as a Yiddish-speaking French trained chef) who currently operates one of the country’s top delis, Kenny and Ziggy’s in Houston. Kenny and Ziggy’s has been touted in press reviews ranging from “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives” to the L.A. Daily News.
We saw Deli Man at the Rutgers Jewish Film Festival last November when it was shown as a sneak preview. It's now available as a DVD or Instant Video.
Here's the trailer. Enjoy!
