Shoah Director's Final Film: The Four Sisters
The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center - 66th Street, Between Fifth and Madison Avenues 10 East 66th Street New York, NY 10065
Widely considered the greatest documentary ever made, and called "a towering -- and utterly singular -- achievement in cinema," Claude Lanzmann's Shoah laid bare the horrors of the Holocaust like never before. Interviews with survivors and former Nazi officials put a face on the inconceivable. Even with the film's 9.5-hour running time, Lanzmann was haunted by the stories he wasn't able to include. But in 2017, just a year before his death, he released a new film containing four of those stories: The Four Sisters. Now you can see the first part, The Hippocratic Oath, on the big screen at The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Centerin in NYC. The film introduces Ruth Elias, who when she was only weeks pregnant was sent to Auschwitz, where she met her new doctor: Josef Mengele. Following the screening, there will be a conversation with Bernard-Henri Lévy, who The Boston Globe called "perhaps the most prominent intellectual in France today."
