Type of Event Arts & Culture
Description "A Film Unfinished" (Directed by Yael Hersonski, Germany/Israel, 2010, 88 min., in German/Hebrew/Yiddish/Polish with English subtitles). At the end of WWII, 60 minutes of raw film, having sat undisturbed in an East German archive, was discovered. Shot by the Nazis in Warsaw in May 1942, and labeled simply "Ghetto," this footage quickly became a resource for historians seeking an authentic record of the Warsaw Ghetto. However, the later discovery of a long-missing reel complicated earlier readings of the footage. A FILM UNFINISHED presents the raw footage in its entirety, carefully noting fictionalized sequences (including a staged dinner party) falsely showing "the good life" enjoyed by Jewish urbanites, and probes deep into the making of a now-infamous Nazi propaganda film. A FILM UNFINISHED is a film of enormous import, documenting some of the worst horrors of our time and exposing the efforts of its perpetrators to propel their agenda and cast it in a favorable light. Director Yael Hersonski is here from Israel to introduce the film and answer questions following the film screening. To purchase tickets in advance, please visit, or purchase tickets at the event venue, at West Newton Cinema.
