Free screening followed by panel discussion with film subjects Rick & Laura Brown and the artists who worked on the project, filmmakers Cary & Yari Wolinsky, film interviewee Brandeis University Professor Antony Polonsky, and architectural historian Tom Hubka

Inspired by images of the magnificent wooden synagogues of 18th century Poland–the last of which were destroyed by the Nazis–artists Rick & Laura Brown of Handshouse Studio set out to reconstruct a replica of the stunning, mural-covered Gwozdziec synagogue.

Working with a team of 300 artisans and students from around the world, using only period hand tools and techniques, the Browns finally realized their dream. In 2014, the show-stopping reconstruction was unveiled as the centerpiece of the new POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, in Warsaw.
