May 2010 at the Taube Center for Jewish Studies

Thursday, March 18, 2010 5:00 pm
Levinthal Hall, SHC
Jean-Michel Frodon, Film critic and historian
The Cinema, Defied and Redefined by the Holocaust
Film critic and historian Jean-Michel Frodon, editor of Cinema and the Shoah, explains how, from The Great Dictator to Schindler’s List, the extermination of the Jews of Europe has driven the cinema, more than any other form of artistic expression, to question its methods, techniques, and ethics. It is with reference to the Shoah that a decisive part of the thought behind modern cinema has been constructed, and, consciously or not, many of the greatest films of the past sixty years bear the mark of this event.
