Presented in recognition of Holocaust Remembrance Day

Join us after the film for a discussion with Dr. Miriam Klein Kassenoff, founding director of the University of Miami’s Holocaust Teacher Institute and the Holocaust Education Specialist for Miami-Dade Public Schools, and Igor Shteyrenberg, Miami Jewish Film Festival Executive Director.

So long as we are watching history, history is not over. Three minutes of footage, shot by David Kurtz in 1938, are the only moving images remaining of the Jewish inhabitants of Nasielsk, Poland before the Holocaust. Home movies have an inherent quality of loss and mortality, but these rare color images of an average day in Nasielsk take on an entirely new and overwhelming significance when viewed in the context of what was to come. Three Minutes – A Lengthening explores the human stories hidden within the celluloid. Director Bianca Steiger meticulously pores over every second of the footage—sometimes in slow motion, sometimes still, forwards and even backwards—to draw meaning from each frame. The end result is a profound meditation on memory, history, and the nature of film as a medium. Narrated by Academy Award nominee Helena Bonham Carter and co-produced by Academy Award winner Steve McQueen.
