#uploading_holocaust Thursday 3-15 11:30 AM
Documentary / Dir: Udi Nir and Sagi Bornstein / Israel / 2016/ Hebrew w/ Eng ST / 75 min
The first documentary based entirely on curated YouTube clips. Every year, thousands of Israeli high school students make the journey to Poland to learn about the Holocaust. They visit 4 concentration camps, 3 mass graves, 2 ghettos and perform 14 memorial ceremonies over 8 days. Technologically savvy, the teens record the entire experience - from every survivor testimony to hotel hangouts and selfies. They then upload their stories to YouTube to share on social media. Brilliant editing shows the teens moving from facts, to reflection, to deep emotion at sites where friends ancestors, or their own, were murdered. A provocative and moving look at the way collective memory is formed in the internet age.
