Jose Ferrer directed this brash, hard-bitten expose. A probing reporter (Ferrer) is tasked with assembling a crowd-pleasing tribute to a renowned broadcaster after his death. The emerging collage is of an autocratic, narcissistic heel loved by everybody, except those who hated him. The broadcaster’s populist ways and colossal ego were the model for the cracker-barrel demagogue in “A Face in the Crowd”. Discussion after the film.

A unique lecture on a topic that is not commonly discussed in the context of the Holocaust – the art of the holocaust.
Art is a powerful representation of the horrors, the hope, the anger and the hopelessness experienced by Jews during and after the holocaust. Through personal stories of victims, survivors and children artists, he will cover real examples of art created by them. We will observe and discuss how art has created a visual, long-living record of the holocaust experienced. How it has been used as evidence for what really happened, how it helped children cope, imagining a better world and how it became a form of resistance by the artists.
The memorable lecture will bring a powerful and unique perspective.
