I just saw a great documentary about the beginnings of the klezmer revival in the late 70s, A Jumpin’ Night in the Garden of Eden.

“A Jumpin’ Night in the Garden of Eden was the first film to document the klezmer revival, tracing the efforts of two founding groups, Kapelye and Boston’s Klezmer Conservatory Band, to recover the lost history of klezmer music.”

You can stream the first half-hour at the Folkstreams website, or try to find it at your local library.
