Another Story

Meryl and Anna learn a lesson in discrimination and racial profiling when their Grandmother takes them on a journey through a Brothers Grimm-like fairy tale: an allegorical fable from the Grandmotherís past. It is a story of a land far, far away where an evil king has passed a law against those who have black fingernails. Anna and Meryl are transported into their Grandmotherís fairy tale. Back in the living room, visibly moved, the girls ask their Grandmother where she heard such a story. "Thatís another story," she replies, as the numbers tattooed on her arm are revealed. Ages 7 and up.

"The film speaks universally to the phenomenon of hate and prejudice through the technique of story telling." óChicago Intíl Childrenís Film Festival

Let Memory Speak
 
One and a half million children! The number staggers the imagination. Child survivor and educator Batia Bettman's sensitive documentary focuses on the most tragic victims of the Holocaust, the children, whose only "crime" was to have been born Jewish. Through the use of photographs, diaries, poems, memoirs and testimonies, the filmmaker personalizes the lives of the children before World War II, during the Holocaust, at Liberation and today, in a way that enables us to begin to comprehend their lives. The child survivors have only recently begun to tell their stories. The film explores the concept of how memory and legacy are transmitted from generation to generation, as evidenced in the very moving final segment filmed recently during the March of the Living. The young generation has now returned to walk in the footsteps of those who perished. With music written, arranged and performed by Zalmen Mlotek.

Kinder-Exodus 1939
Shortly after Kristallnacht in November of 1938, the British House of Commons authorized the entry of children to Great Britain as transmigrants. Almost 10,000 Jewish children from Austria, Germany and Czechoslovakia were saved from almost certain death in what became known as the kindertransport; most never saw their parents again. By interspersing her subjects' narratives with photographs of them as children, filmmaker Hilary Gatoff enables us to follow their lives from traumatic childhood to successful adulthood.

Preserving the Past to Ensure the Future
Ray Errol Fox's soulful video deals with the 1,500,000 Jewish children who perished in the Holocaust.  We join visitors, young and old, white and black, Jew and Gentile, as they express their shock at the incomprehensible realities with which they are confronted on their visit to Jerusalem's Yad Vashem museum and its haunting Children's Memorial.  Fox juxtaposes footage of racist violence with the poetry and artwork of children who died in the camps, making this a most powerful experience.
