Open to the Public

We are commemorating International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a video-on-demand screening of “Petit Rat” (Vera Wagman, 2021, USA, 45 mins.). In 1940, a French Jewish girl’s dream of becoming a ballerina is cut short by World War II. She vows that if she has daughters, they will become dancers. Nearly 80 years later, she and her two daughters confront the impact of that? pledge. Petit Rat is a portrait of three women, bonded by the intergenerational trauma of war and uplifted by the resilience of familial love. This video is available on demand from January 20, 8pm to January 27, 8pm. Live Q&A with filmmaker Vera Wagman and her sister Deborah Wagman on January 27 at 7:45pm.
