New York City, NY: ACFNY SUPPORTED | FILM SCREENING BERNHARD HETZENAUER: AND THERE WAS FIRE IN THE CENTER OF THE EARTH

 

Don't miss this Austrian documentary at Ecuadorian Film Festival New York 2016. Born in 1912 in Prague, Vera Kohn escaped Czechoslovakia a few months after Nazi Germany had invaded her country. In 1939 she made her way with her family to Ecuador where many Jews found refuge. Here she began a new life. This film tells Vera's story, which the film's director contrasts and merges with his personal questions of collective guilt and individual responsibility as he attempts to come to terms with his own family's past. The screening is followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Bernhard Hetzenauer.

When: SUNDAY JUN 05, 01:30 PM
