Sosua: Make a Better World

Special Film Screening

Sunday, May 5, 2013 at 2:00pm


Followed by a conversation with Director and Producers Peter Miller and Renee Silverman.

A new documentary (2013) about community, history, the power of the arts, and the promise of diversity. The hour-long film tells the story of Dominican and Jewish teenagers in New York's Washington Heights neighborhood, who together with the legendary theater director Liz Swados, put on a musical about the Dominican Republic's rescue of 800 Jews from Hitler. Award-winning filmmakers Peter Miller and Renée Silverman interweave this little-known - and racially complex - Holocaust story with an intimate, behind-the-scenes portrait of the making of the theater production. In a neighborhood where Jews and Latinos live side by side but rarely interact, the theater project brings its young actors on an extraordinary journey of discovery of what unites them - both in the past and in the present.
