Jonathan Berman in The Shvitz

The Shvitz

1993 NR

This affectionate documentary takes viewers into the steam to uncover a fascinating community of "shvitzers" -- that's Yiddish for people who sweat. Included among the regulars who gather to find renewal are poets, rabbis, masseuses, and gangsters.
