The New Yorker director and journalist Daniel Lombroso made Nina&Irena—a film about his grandmother, Nina Gottlieb, a Holocaust survivor who comes to terms with the loss of her sister who was never found after remaining silent about her experiences for 80 years. According to Lombroso, this film is a response and a coda to his previous documentary, White Noise, for which he spent four-years reporting on the American alt-right.

Lombroso will be joined in conversation by Gottlieb and a staff member of The New Yorker after the screening of Nina&Irena to discuss the film, their experiences, and the connection to Lombroso’s work on White Noise.

Doors open at 6:30 PM. Admission to the Museum’s exhibitions is free with attendance. The screening is live only, and the conversation will be available on our YouTube channel after the event.
