Join the Museum for a screening and discussion of the award-winning and Oscar-qualified short film GANEF (2020) from director Mark Rosenblatt.
Inspired by stories from the aftermath of Rosenblatt’s own family’s Holocaust survival, GANEF explores, through the tiniest of domestic details, the subtle and complicated impact of trauma on the next generation. The film, set in London in 1962, centers on a little girl, spooked by a dark tale from her mother’s Holocaust past, who starts to believe her adored cleaner is a thief. It stars Lydia Wilson, Izabella Dziewanska, and Downton Abbey’s Sophie McShera.
This program will include a screening of the 14-minute short film followed by a discussion with the team behind the film. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Irit Felsen, a clinical psychologist with extensive experience working with Holocaust survivors and their families.
