Welcome to the website for The Macaroon King documentary film. This 2018 film follows Arnold Badner – the “Macaroon King” as he struggles with changes at his Brooklyn Kosher for Passover bakery. The film touches on issues of Jewish identity, family dynamics, small business owners, unions and labor in New York City.  This cinema vérité style documentary is an engaging and often funny view into a small corner of Brooklyn manufacturing.
