Four Winters Screens at New Plaza Cinema with Special Guests
New Plaza Cinema continues their engagement of the highly acclaimed documentary Four Winters, November 12 at 5:15 pm and November 13 at 2:35 pm.
Torn from their families by Hitler’s armies, men and women, many barely out of their teens, escaped into the forests, banding together in partisan brigades; engaging in treacherous acts of sabotage, and attacking enemy headquarters. Against extraordinary odds, over 25,000 Jewish partisans courageously fought the Nazis and their collaborators from deep with the forest of WWII’s Belarus, Ukraine and Eastern Europe, drawing parallels to the current resistance in Ukraine. The last surviving partisans, in their 80s and 90s, relive their journey in Four Winters, a story of enduring hope, and humanity.
Q&A on Saturday with Director Julia Mintz and on Sunday with New York Amsterdam News Publisher & Editor-in-Chief, Elinor Tatum, Director Julia Mintz and Eva Haller, Holocaust Survivor.
