2017. Dir: Claude Lanzmann. 141 min. B&W / Color. Featuring Ruth Elias and Ada Lichtman. Parts 1 & 2: The Hippocratic Oath & The Merry Flea
Official Selection of the New York Film Festival Using previously unseen footage compiled for his monumental documentary Shoah, filmmaker Claude Lanzmann in his final years completed a four part film devoted to a quartet of women from different areas of Eastern Europe, with different destinies, each finding herself improbably alive after war’s end. Survivors of unimaginable Holocaust horrors, they tell their individual stories and become crucial witnesses to the barbarism they experienced. Each possesses a vivid intelligence and candor that make their accounts both searing and unforgettable.
