A documentary about an aging group of Holocaust survivors will be shown at the UUFDC on Tuesday, October 16 at 4:30 pm.
The survivors, haunted by the past but driven by an unquenchable passion for living, gathers each summer at an idyllic hideaway in the Catskills, where they savor tightly bonded friendships, find new love and celebrate their survival.
Directed by New York Times journalist Andrew Jacobs, with the legendary Albert Maysles contributing cinematography, Four Seasons Lodge is an inspiring and surprisingly funny documentary that captures what may be the final season for a remarkable tribe of survivors, who have found that dancing, laughter and late-night revelry may be the best revenge. What is heroic about these rowdy, cantankerous survivors is their appetite for the pleasures of the everyday.
The screening will be followed by a discussion of the film.
