Capturing Creativity

Erik Greenberg Anjou ’83 always knew he wanted to be a writer. But it wasn’t until senior year at Middlebury when he took an American film genres course with Prof. Ted Perry that he began to realize his career path would be in filmmaking. The producer and director of several documentaries, he recently talked to MiddMag about the making of his latest endeavor, a full-length documentary entitled The Klezmatics: On Holy Ground. For over three years he and his crew traveled alongside this klezmer band, invading their private lives, filming their band tours, and documenting their conflicts and joys during the creative process. It was a journey of ups and downs with a fascinating group of people who have kept alive a klezmer and Yiddish heritage and who make what he calls “heavenly music.”
