Since 1925 the Streit's matzo factory has sat in a low-slung tenement building on Manhattan's Lower East Side. While other matzo companies have modernized, Streit's remained a piece of living history, churning out 40 percent of the nation's unleavened bread on pre-War machinery as old as the factory itself. In this new documentary, filmmaker Michael Levine captures the Streit's saga and how it echoes the American Dream.
