Glass House - Lechaim El Salvador
This moving documentary is the untold story of how El Salvador, one of the smallest countries in the world, facilitated one of the most successful rescue operations of World War II. Beginning in 1942, the lives of thirty thousand Jews were saved when they were issued certificates of Salvadoran citizenship thanks to El Salvador Action headed by

Jose Arturo Castellanos, who in 1938 was assigned to open the Consulate of El Salvador in Hamburg while Europe was under the siege of the Nazis. The Glass House shows us one of the greatest humanitarian efforts in the history of the Holocaust. Filmed over a three-year period on location in Central America, Switzerland, Hungary, and Spain, this inspiring story is told by the sons and daughters of the heroes themselves, as well as some of the survivors of that effort who owe their lives to the tiny country with a brave and humble heart.

Please join us following the film for an intimate reception at the Creekside Room, Dominican University. Enjoy Latin appetizers, fine wine, and music in the company of film lovers and filmmakers. This special evening celebrates the courage of the Salvadoran and Jewish communities, and the triumph of the human spirit.

Special invited guests include Glass House director Brad Marlowe, producer Leonor Avila Marlowe, and executive coordinator, Juan Torres, as well as 2008 ILFF tributee Gregory Nava (El Norte).
