Max Glauben, a Survivor-Speaker for the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance, will be the featured guest speaker following the September 23rd Dallas premiere of the internationally-acclaimed documentary on the Warsaw Ghetto, A Film Unfinished. As a child, Max, along with his family, was confined in the Warsaw Ghetto.
A Film Unfinished, a featured selection of the Dallas VideoFest, will premiere in Dallas at 7 p.m. at the Angelika, 5321 East Mockingbird Lane, Dallas.
The film documents how Nazi filmmakers sought to portray “the good life” for Warsaw Ghetto residents through its fictionalized sequences, such as a staged dinner party. But with the recent discovery of raw film of actual ghetto life shot by Nazi cameramen, Israeli filmmaker Yael Hersonski uncovers the deceit by exposing some of the worst horrors of our time. About 500,000 Jews were forced to occupy only 3 square miles of Warsaw between 1940 and 1943, leading to almost unimaginable poverty and desolation, before being sent to their deaths. The film is rated “R.”
