Screening of “Article 116: Beyond Citizenship” with Q&A to Follow

***RSVP requested***

July 10th 4 to 5:30pm at B’ShERT and on Zoom 

On July 10th, documentary film producers David Padrusch and Jeffrey Nosanov will be coming to the B’ShERT Community Room to premiere 30 minutes of their documentary-in-progress entitled Article 116: Beyond Citizenship.

The documentary, a work currently still in progress, explores the meaning of German citizenship stolen by the Nazis from 1933-1945, and the stories behind the current process that descendants are undergoing to reclaim that citizenship today.

The filmmakers’ families are personally impacted by this quest to reclaim citizenship, as are several of our congregants and likely so many people in our extended Jewish communities. 

The 90-minute event on the afternoon of July 10th will be an in-person screening and concurrent Zoom screening, followed by a Q & A with the filmmakers, facilitated by congregant Emma Tattenbaum-Fine. We will discuss the themes presented in the short cut of the upcoming documentary; we will ask questions of the filmmakers and learn about the goals and obstacles they are currently embracing as they seek to finish the project, as well as their plans for the film once it’s finished. 

This is a unique opportunity for the B’ShERT community to support Jewish filmmakers as they endeavor to tell an important historical story, while it is unfolding before us in real time.
