LA Premiere! Sneak Preview of “THREE MINUTES – A Lengthening” with Q&A

August 16, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm PDT

A snippet of 16mm film offers an emotional glimpse into the lives of unsuspecting Polish Jews of a small village at the onset of WWII.

LA Jewish Film Festival and Super Ltd. present an exclusive sneak preview Premiere!

ONE NIGHT ONLY with Q&A with filmmaker Bianca Stigter and Glenn Kurtz, moderated by scholar, Michael Berenbaum

Three minutes of home movie footage, mostly in color, shot by David Kurtz in 1938, are the only known moving images left of the Jewish inhabitants of Nasielsk, Poland, before the Holocaust. Those precious minutes are examined in intricate detail to unravel the human stories hidden in the celluloid.

Tracing the story of those three minutes begins with the journey of Glenn Kurtz to discover more about his grandfather’s film, ultimately leading to identifying people and places otherwise erased from history, and helping to connect a Holocaust Survivor with his lost childhood.

Written & directed by Dutch filmmaker, Bianca Stigter, co-produced by Academy Award® winner Steve McQueen (Director of “12 Years a Slave“), narrated by Academy Award® nominee, actress Helena Bonham Carter.
