Much of my time spent with the silver screen this past year has been with documentary films. This is both due to the fact my wife has been working closely with documentary filmmakers here in Los Angeles, and more importantly, there have been some outstanding/groundbreaking works in the documentary film world of late.

This being so, news of director Michael Tully’s new ducumentary chronicling Dave Berman’s Silver Jews is the best joos news since catching them live at the Henry Fonda Music Box last Fall. Pitchfork Media reports that Tully captured the Middle East leg of the Silver Jews tour last year and will debut his 51 minute doc, entitled Silver Jew, at this year’s SXSW film festival in Austin — DVD details TBA. Check out the film’s trailer below, Tully’s video for the joos’ video “I’m Getting Back Into Getting Back Into You” that was shot in Jerusalem, and “Random Rules” off the joos’ 1998 LP American Water.

  1. huh. i guess there is a god and he does listen to prayers.

    ‘random rules’ is a f-ing awesome track.

  2. […] If The Silver Jews played that “Surfjew” song, would they just call themselves The Jewish Silver Surfers? Go to Aquarium Drunkard and ponder this. […]

  3. […] Wow! Silver Jews doc! […]

  4. […] As previously reported Dave Berman and his Joos are the subject of director Michael Tully’s documentary following the band on their tour throughout Israel last summer. […]

  5. Thanks so much The three great essentials to achieve anything worth while are, first, hard work; second, stick-to-itiveness; third, common sense. ~Thomas Edison
