Jewish Film Festival Reviews
from Kenneth L. Kann, author "Comrades and Chicken Ranchers":
"A Home on the Range" is a terrific documentary of the Petaluma chicken ranching community. It brings to life the history of an extraordinary community of Eastern European Jewish immigrants in rural California. Through evocative narratives by community members of all generations, vivid historical photographs and film, and haunting music of the times, the filmmakers show life lived large in a small community with volatile politics, a vibrant Yiddish culture, strong families, and complex relationships with the gentile world around them. This superb documentary shows us the significance of community tradition, the relentless march of assimilation, and the power of historical memory for the generations that followed the immigrant founders of the community.
