Popovich Brothers Of South Chicago, The

In a small community of steel workers, truck drivers, and teachers on the South Side of Chicago, a musical group called the Popovich Brothers maintained the traditional music and rich culture of their Serbian homeland by performing in local venues. During the 1970s, when this poignant but entertaining documentary was produced, the Popovich Brothers had been performing for almost 50 years, bringing this music to young generations eager to embrace the culture and values of their parents' native country. The brothers play with an earnest passion, making their love of the music and traditions infectious.

The Popovich Brothers Of South Chicago chronicles the end of an era as death and old age alter the group's members and internal dynamic. Just as the brothers preserve the traditions and culture of another time and place, so does this documentary offer a snapshot of Chicago's Serbian-American community, capturing a part of the immigrant experience. Time and progress may alter the landscape of the neighborhood . . . but the music lives on.
