2024 ∙ Documentary ∙ 84 minutes ∙ English ∙ Lex Gillespie

As bungalow colony proprietors, guests, waiters, comedians, hoteliers, and beauticians share colorful tales of Catskill farms, boarding houses, and luxury resorts, they paint a picture of vibrant American Jewish life and culture in the 20th century. With a trove of lost-and-found archival footage and a cast of characters endowed with the gift of gab, this documentary journeys into the storied mountain getaway north of New York City.
