Join the conversation! Do you ever leave a film thinking, dreaming, questioning? Do you ever turn to someone and say, "Oh my! What did you think?" Now you can! After select films, join in a friendly community chat with other patrons who experienced the same film. We may not be together physically but we can still connect! A link to register for the discussion will arrive with your virtual entry to the film when the screening window opens.

About the Film:  As the last generation of Holocaust survivors live out their final years, the number of individuals who are physically and mentally able to recount first person experiences dwindles, leaving the question of what will happen to their stories. Through drama therapy exercises, Brooklyn high school students bear witness to the experiences of three Holocaust survivors. The Witness Theater program forges deep personal connections between the students and survivors, ensuring that their stories will live on.
