Event Description
THE STURGEON QUEENS

Dir. Julie Cohen (50min, USA, 2014)
Documentary
Mid-Atlantic Premiere


Four generations of a Jewish immigrant family created Russ and Daughters, a Lower East Side lox and herring emporium that thrives to this day. Produced to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the store, this documentary features extensive interviews with two of the original daughters for whom the store was named, now 100 and 92 years old.


We also hear from prominent enthusiasts of the shop including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, New Yorker writer Calvin Trillin, and 60 Minutes correspondent Morley Safer, as well as a host of inimitable characterswho have patronized the store for decades.
