Joel Santoni's powerful drama is a vivid retelling of the moving true story of Aristides de Sousa Mendes, the Portuguese Consul General stationed in Bordeaux, France, during World War II.  His government had issued strict orders to all its diplomats, in a document called Circular 14, to deny visas to Holocaust refugees seeking to escape Occupied Europe through Portugal.  Sousa Mendes defied these orders and issued Portuguese visas to an estimated 30,000 people in May and June of 1940 in an operation described by the Holocaust scholar Yehuda Bauer as "perhaps the largest rescue action by a single individual during the Holocaust." Sousa Mendes' defiance of government's order was harshly punished. Famed French actor Bernard Le Coq is brilliant as Sousa Mendes. These events will honor the families rescued by this hero, some of whom will be in attendance.
