Jewish Studies to screen film on Holocaust representation: A Film Unfinished


Contributed by Rebecca Lesses

 On Thursday, November 8, at 7 pm in Textor 101, A Film Unfinished will be screened. 

A Film Unfinished, released last year, is about a Nazi propaganda film that was shot in the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II. The Nazi film was never shown during the Third Reich, but was used afterwards in documentary films about the Holocaust, because it was viewed as giving direct access to the experience of Jews in the Ghetto. In 1998, outtakes from the film were discovered which show how the scenes were staged and that they do not, in fact, document Jewish life in an unmediated fashion. 

The film is free and open to the public.
