An Incredible Journey Beckons…
2015 HOLOCAUST FILM SERIES ANNOUNCED
In recognition of an overwhelmingly positive response to its inaugural season, the HOLOCAUST FILM SERIES, presented by JIFF, returns to Melbourne and Sydney from 12 to 25 March.
Please mark your calendars!
But despite the austere title of this film series, the journey that we invite audiences to embark upon is not grim, but one of courage, fascination and admiration for the people who have lived through some of modern history’s most challenging events. For it is only by facing the past and learning from their experiences, that we can continue to develop and appreciate the gift of life, whilst striving to banish the racial prejudice that still continues to motivate so many crimes.
The 2015 HOLOCAUST FILM SERIES is therefore proud to present 35 utterly compelling feature films, documentaries and shorts from around the world, all of which will be screening for the very first time in Australia, with no guarantee of repeat viewings beyond this film series. The eclectic range of stories showcased will enthrall, inform and give pause for reflection.
And although one might think that the cinematic potential of the Holocaust has been exhausted over the last seventy years, nothing could be further from the truth. Tales of incredible human resilience and lasting impact, continue to emerge and through this event we are honoured to showcase a relatively small, but vital selection of stories and incidents that illuminate a period of history that brought forth the very best and worst of mankind, with repercussions that still echo.
HOLOCAUST FILM SERIES will screen from 12 to 25 March at:
MELBOURNE: Classic Cinema Elsternwick
SYDNEY: Event Cinemas Bondi
TICKETS ON SALE FROM 12 FEBRUARY 2015
