'Klezmer Musicians Travel Home to Krakow' intersperses traditional and nouveau-Klezmer music with introspective thoughts and feelings of some of today' s greatest Klezmer-style musicians, examining why they return annually to the Krakow Jewish Cultural Festival. This documentary, narrated by Theodore Bikel, is bookended by an old Yiddish folktale that flavorfully sets forth the theme of Krakow as a destination for a treasure trove of Jewish history and culture.
