In conjunction with our current exhibition, Heroes of the Knish, we’re screening If These Knishes Could Talk: The Story of the New York Accent followed by a discussion with filmmaker Heather Quinlan on Saturday, April 1 at 7 PM.
This film premiered at the 2013 Art of Brooklyn Film Festival. It explores why New Yorkers eat “chawclate” and drink “cawfee,” and how the accent became the vibrant soundtrack of a city. Featuring Penny Marshall, Amy Heckerling, Alan Dershowitz, and a cast of characters from Canarsie to Tottenville. It has received coverage from NPR, the New York Times, and The New Yorker.
