Film Discussion with Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center
June 25 | 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
RESISTANCE: A Film + Live Discussion with Jesse Eisenberg
Long before he rose to international fame as a mime, Marcel Marceau put his fledgling career as an artist on hold to spirit Jewish refugee children out of Nazi-occupied France, even as his own father was murdered at Auschwitz. Watch the extraordinary new film Resistance, about that little-known chapter of Marceau’s life, and then join our discussion with the film’s star, Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), director and screenwriter Jonathan Jakubowicz (Hands of Stone, Secuestro Express), Dr. Barry Eisenberg (SUNY Empire State College and Second-Generation Survivor) and Dr. Eileen M. Angelini (SUNY Empire State College and Subject Matter Expert on the WWII Occupation of France).
Moderated by Richard Salomon, Vice President of the Illinois Holocaust Museum’s Board of Directors, with a special introduction by David Estrin, CEO of #TogetherWeRemember and closing word by Susan Abrams, CEO at the Illinois Holocaust Museum.
The online discussion is free and open to the public.
The registration link also provides the film trailer and links for ways to watch the film prior to the discussion.
Temple Emanu-El’s Streicker Center in partnership with Together We Remember, the Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center, IFC Films and Mean Streets Management.
