Matzo Ball Olympics


Now that the Winter Olympics are over, what will you watch?  Try Matzo Ball Olympics, the new short video I produced for Manischewitz, being released just in time for Passover.  Starring friend and filmmaker Zach Timm as Matzo Ball Olympian, Manny Schevitz.

Filmed throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.

This is a shorter teaser version of a mini-mockumentary I produced about Manny Schevitz, a beleaguered Matzo Ball Olympian.  I hope I get to share the longer version someday, or the world may never know the story behind the matzo ball.
