Filmmaker Laura Bialis (“Rock in the Red Zone”) joins producer Roberta Grossman (“Above and Beyond”), writer Sophie Sartain and executive producer Nancy Spielberg (“Who Will Write Our History”) to give Boston a special behind-the-scenes look at their new film, “Vishniac.”

Join the Vilna and Boston Jewish Film for a conversation that explores the making of this important film, learn intimate stories about Vishniac and see never-seen-before clips from the film, which is expected to debut at the 2021 Boston Jewish Film Festival.

Stunning, iconic, heartbreaking and yet life-affirming, Roman Vishniac’s photographs of Eastern European Jews in the 1930s are imprinted in our collective memory as the last visual records of a world wiped out in the Holocaust. The story of their creation, and of the fascinating man behind them, has never been told, until now.
