Nathan’s Famous is the 30 year insider documentary by Lloyd Handwerker, grandson of Nathan Handwerker, who founded the legendary Brooklyn eatery and iconic New York institution, Nathan’s Famous, in Coney Island in 1916.

Over a thirty-year period, Lloyd has filmed, archived and researched the story of both his grandfather and the family-run business. The film contains never before heard audio recordings of Nathan describing his upbringing in a poor village in Poland, emigration to New York and details of creating and running Nathan’s for over forty years.

“Terrific documentaries are a dime a dozen; ones this multifaceted are to be cherished.” – Sam Weisberg, Village Voice

The exclusive showing in San Diego, 11th September through 14th September, is produced by Digital Gym Cinema.
