Jewish Film Festival: “My Italian Secret” at Southampton Arts Center
August 30, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmFree
Director Oren Jacoby. “My Italian Secret, The Forgotten Heroes” tells the story of sports idol Gino Bartali and other courageous Italians who carried out ingenious schemes to rescue Jews. As an entire continent was engulfed in a genocide which took the lives of most Jews in Nazi occupied Europe (nearly 6 million people), more than 80 percent of Italy’s Jews survived. Bartali, like most of the rescuers, never sought recognition or reward. Few of those he helped knew his name or what role he played in their rescue. This is a fascinating little known story. FREE NIGHT
Southampton Arts Center is pleased to host the Second Annual Southampton Jewish Film Festival, a series of archival films that celebrate and educate about the Jewish experience. Curated by Artistic Director, Tina Silverman.
The Festival is presented by the Southampton Cultural Center in partnership with Chabad Southampton Jewish Center.
Films will be shown indoors at Southampton Arts Center, 25 Jobs Lane.
