Film | Shoah (1985): The Epic 9-Hour Masterpiece on the Holocaust


On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, a screening of Claude Lanzmann’s 1985 masterpiece in a rare public screening of the restored 9.5-hour film in its entirety. Shoah is the most comprehensive and radical film about the extermination of European Jews by the Nazis: 12 years of production and research, 350 hours of material, 566 minutes of film against forgetting. 30 years after the end of WWII, the French filmmaker visited the places of extermination, the “death factories” of Chelmno, Belzec, Sobibor, Treblinka, and Auschwitz, and found that grass had grown over them. Hence the persistence with which he sought out the last eyewitnesses to the catastrophe – rare survivors of the Sonderkommandos, bystanders, and Nazi perpetrators, too – in Poland, Israel, the United States, and Germany to question them about deportation and everyday life in the camps. This epic large-scale project does without a score, without any form of commentary or historical footage. It’s focus is not on a documentation of the past, but on the presence of memory.   Schedule: 10:30am Doors open 11:00am Film starts 3:30-4:00pm Break 9:00pm Film ends
