To commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day on April 21, Temple Har Shalom invites you to join us for a virtual screening of a beautiful and brand new film that explores the intersection of art and memory. The event is free but requires registration in order to provide you with an access code to the film (more details below).

Éva Fahidi was 20 years old when she returned alone to Hungary from Auschwitz Birkenau, her family murdered by the Nazis. 70 years later, aged 90, Éva is asked to participate in a dance-theatre performance about her life. Director Réka Szabo imagines a duet between Éva and the internationally acclaimed dancer, Emese, juxtaposing these two women on stage, young and old, to see how their bodies and their stories can intertwine.

Thanks to the efforts of our partners at The Film Collaborative, we will have access to the film online so that you may view it at home. A discussion of the film will happen on Zoom and we are working to include the filmmakers in that conversation.
