Through the Eye of the NeedleThe Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz followed by Violins in Wartime
Through the Eye of the Needle: The Art of Esther Nisenthal Krinitz
Short/USA/30 minutes/2011
Directed by Nina Shapiro-Perl  

At 15, Esther Nisenthal defied Nazi orders, separating from her family as they reported to a nearby train station. She and her sister survived the war by inventing new identities and hiding in plain sight of the Gestapo, but they never saw their family again. Haunted by memories, she felt compelled to tell her story and turned to needle and thread, ultimately creating thirty-six large and exquisitely detailed works of fabric collage and embroidery--a legacy borne of love, loss, and the sheer force of memory.

Violins in Wartime  
Documentary/Israel/52 minutes /2011
Directed by Yael Katzir
Produced by Dan Katzir

Set against the backdrop of the second Lebanon war in the summer of 2006, the film portrays the perseverance of a remarkable group of musicians  master artists and students  who continue teaching and practicing violin in spite of the ongoing conflict. The artists struggle to keep worry at bay and to maintain sanity through music. The film is a rare document portraying aspects of Israeli life seldom seen in the media, in which the violin becomes a symbol of abiding Jewish-Israeli resilience.
