The Last Laugh
NJ Premiere. Can humor and the Holocaust ever co-exist? Ferne Pearlstein"s hilarious, insightful and uplifting documentary asks this question and puts this question to both Holocaust survivors and some of the biggest names in comedy. Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Gilbert Gottfried and Rob Reiner (among a score of world-class comedians) weigh in with their opinions, and the film follows survivor Renee Firestone as she too debates what can and cannot be said in a society that prizes itself on free speech. The Last Laugh pulls that most difficult of cinematic feats " to have you doubled over in laughter one minute, and deep in contemplation on serious social issues the next and it fully shows off a director working with vision, skill and an understanding of how to present vastly complex issues in an enormously engaging and intelligent way. Expected to attend: Director Ferne Pearlstein, Producer Robert Edwards.
