LIBERATION HEROES: THE LAST EYEWITNESSES (IN ASSOCIATION WITH USC SHOAH FOUNDATION)
Liberation Heroes: The Last Eyewitnesses (in association with USC Shoah Foundation) explores what can happen when insidious hatred remains unchecked. Through firsthand testimony of WWII liberators and liberation witnesses, from Steven Spielberg’s USC Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive, stark parallels between the past and present are revealed. As Nazis march again in broad daylight and xenophobic and antisemitic attitudes reemerge, the film serves as a cautionary tale from the greatest generation to heed their warning and take a stand against hate.
SALT & SEA
This film tells of the end of an era. Ireland has a rich history with its lighthouses, helping ships navigate around its rocky coastline. The job of the lighthouse keeper was to communicate with these ships and keep and maintain the lighthouses. The job was accompanied by a very distinct lifestyle in some of the most isolated places in the world. Gerald is one of about a dozen living lighthouse keepers in Ireland, as these lighthouses have become automated since the mid-nineties.
