Holocaust Remembrance Film Series: “A Film Unfinished”

Adults Closed 8/1/2017 9/6/2017 6:00:00 PM

At the end of World War II, 60 minutes of raw film was discovered intact in an East German archive. Shot by the Nazis in Warsaw in May 1942, and labeled simply “Das Ghetto,” this footage quickly became a resource for historians seeking an authentic record of the Warsaw Ghetto. In 1988, another reel was discovered that radically complicated the scholarly interpretation of “Das Ghetto.” “A Film Unfinished” presents the raw footage of the latter reel in its entirety, carefully noting fictionalized sequences (including a staged dinner party) falsely showing “the good life” among Jewish urbanites. 89 minutes. Rated R. Directed by Yael Hersonski. In English, Hebrew, German, Polish and Yiddish, with English subtitles.

This film is not recomended for children under the age of 18.
