The Last Laugh & The Last Blintz Film Screenings

The Last Laugh: 
Are we allowed to make jokes about the Holocaust? In this outrageously funny and thought-provoking film, director Ferne Pearlstein puts that question to comedy legends, including Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Sarah Silverman, Gilbert Gottfried, Alan Zweibel, Harry Shearer, Jeff Ross, Judy Gold, Susie Essman, Larry Charles, Jake Ehrenreich, and many other critical thinkers, as well as Holocaust survivors themselves.

Directed by Ferne Pearlstein
Documentary, 88 min.
USA, 2016

The Last Blintz:
The closing of The Café Edison is not just a story about another famous show business haunt shutting its doors, it is the tragic and premature end of an American Dream-come-true story about a multi-generational, big-hearted, mom-and-pop family business. Join us for a mouthwatering glimpse at the end of an era, and taste what we truly hope won’t be your last blintz.

Directed by Dori Berinstein
Documentary, 25 min.
USA, 2016
