SHOAH: First Era
New 35mm print Special 25th Anniversary presentation
Lanzmann's monumental examination of the Holocaust grew out of a concern that the genocide perpetrated only 40 years earlier was already retreating into the mists of time, that atrocity was becoming sanitized as History. His massive achievementat once epic and intimate, immediate and definitiveis a triumph of form and content that revealed hidden truths while rewriting the rules of documentary filmmaking. Now a quarter-century old, SHOAH remains nothing less than essential.
"I consider SHOAH to be the greatest documentary about contemporary history ever made, bar none, and by far the greatest film I've ever seen about the Holocaust." Marcel Ophüls
