SHOAH
Lanzmann | 1985 | France | 564m
*Q&A & book-signing w/ Lanzmann
1:00 at BAM

“One of the great works of art of the twentieth century. Using no historical footage, Lanzmann instead elicits the detailed horror of mass death by asphyxiation from his own conversations with Jewish victims, German perpetrators, and Polish bystanders. In his expansive ‘fiction of the real,’ as he calls it, he is like a French realist novelist of the nineteenth century, addressing an injustice by painstaking research. Lanzmann does what the existentialists spoke about but rarely did: imposing his mind and his will on a great emptiness, forcing it to take shape, and so leaving a trace of himself in history.”
Timothy Snyder, The New York Review of Books [Read More]
