Special joint presentation with the Colonial Theater of this year’s Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner for Best Foreign Film: “SON OF SAUL”. It is a grueling portrayal of the most horrendous event in human history which explores where are the boundaries of being human and how can we keep our dignity in a cruel, human less world?
Guest Speaker: Spirit Holder Eve Marko, co-founder of the Zen Peacemakers’ “Bearing Witness at Auschwitz Program.” Marko brings a deeply personal perspective as a child of survivors and later the co-founder of Zen Peacemakers’ annual Bearing Witness Retreats at Auschwitz-Birkenau. This film, as challenging as it is, could also be transformative, and Marko will guide us into and through the experience.
