"A Film Unfinished" showing Thursday, November 8, 7:00 pm, in Textor 101


Contributed by Rebecca Lesses

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 sponsored by the program in Jewish Studies, and is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact Rebecca Lesses, rlesses@ithaca.edu or 274-3556.
