Opening Night: April 12, 2018
This event being an elegant and meaningful event was important to me. It was important to me that my students felt that their work was worthy of a lofty event. It was important that this wasn't just another school presentation but something quite special that my students had created for the community - and the world at large. I wanted my students to feel like "real" or should I say - professional - artists on their opening night.
The links above will take you to our local Cleveland Jewish News paper that covered our process and film festival night in two of their issues (sent out to entire Jewish community). And the third link will take you to another event: after hearing about our documentary projects, a local synagogue reached out about showcasing our students' work at their Luncheon to Honors Survivors. The crowd, largely composed of Holocaust Survivors, was quite impressed and emotionally moved by the work our students created. The Survivors in our film were the guest speakers at the Luncheon. And it was such a privilege to attend.
