Moderated by Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett
Kira Dane / Katelyn Rebelo / Carmen Fernald
Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, Ronald S. Lauder Chief Curator of the Core Exhibition at POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, in Warsaw, and Professor Emerita at New York University, will engage filmmakers Kira Dane, Katelyn Rebelo, and Carmen Fernald in a conversation about experimental approaches to Holocaust documentaries. Dane and Rebelo are currently working on an experimental documentary short based on Invisible Years, about the survival of a Dutch Jewish family. Fernald is making a documentary about those who hid people in the Breeplein Church and the people they hid for the Dutch Broadcasting Corporation. How are these filmmakers redefining the documentary film and creating a new hybrid genre, as they move away from the conventions of voiceover narration and first-person interview, turning instead to animation and other visual media to represent the Holocaust?
This program is in partnership with the South African Holocaust and Genocide Foundation, the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation, Rabin Chair Forum, and Classrooms Without Borders.
