Defiant Requiem Czech Republic/USA - documentary - 85 minutes Directed by Doug Shultz Venue to be announced!
The ultimate act of rebellion occurs in the Terezin concentration camp when young Czech conductor Rafael Schäcter leads a makeshift choir of 150 fellow inmates in performing Verdi's Requiem, a death knell reimagined as a powerful message of hope and justice, in front of the Nazi high brass and Red Cross inspectors. Narrated by Bebe Neuwirth, this documentary brings this moving chronicle to life through reenactments, survivor recollections, animation, and footage from a soaring 2010 memorial concert of Verdi's piece arranged by veteran conductor Murry Sidlin.
The film will be shown at the new Teaneck Cinemas!
