Hirschfield International Film Series: Witness
Open to the Public
WITNESS, the latest project from Arlekin’s Zero Gravity (zero-G) Virtual Theater Lab, is a new documentary theater piece about Jewish immigration in the face of antisemitism. The piece is inspired by the journey of the MS St. Louis, which left Hamburg in 1939 with over 900 Jewish people on board and headed to Cuba only to be turned away, leaving the passengers stranded with nowhere to go and no escape. WITNESS shares stories of Jewish immigrants from around the globe through an interactive virtual theater experience at the nexus of film, theater and video games. (1 hour 30 minutes.) Free. Witness is followed by a discussion with the artists and audience. A Hirschfield International Film Series event. Sponsored by the Holocaust Remembrance Film Fund. The most up-to-date information can be found on our website including the registration links to request tickets for online streaming.
