A Lens on History: An Afternoon with Documentary Filmmaker Noemi Schory

Rimon:The Minnesota Jewish Arts Council
Sunday, November 3
3:00 p.m.
Sabes Jewish Community Center

Israeli director and producer Noemi Schory has built a remarkable body of work centered on stories that have emerged from the time period of the Holocaust. In lively discussion with independent filmmaker Emily Goldberg, Schory will reflect on documentary film's fundamental questions - how do you choose to tell a story and construct a point of view? What is the artist's responsibility to her subject, when the story is the Holocaust? The conversation will feature excerpts from Schory's recent films.

Noemi Schory, is currently an artist-in-residence at the University of Minnesota throughout Fall Semester 2013. A renowned documentary film director and producer, Noemi Schory is active in Israeli and many international co-productions, primarily in the documentary field. She produced A Film Unfinished about the Warsaw Ghetto, which received numerous awards worldwide and was an Emmy nominee after being screened on PBS in 2010. In 2005, Schory was elected president of Input, the international public television conference. She also serves as a museum film director and producer for Yad Vashem, Israel's official memorial for the Jewish victims of the Holocaust.
