The Jewish Film Festival



Is Elie Wiesel correct in thinking that all depictions of the Holocaust are obscene? How can filmmakers and artists answer this charge? Should The Pawnbroker never have been made? Schindler's List? What about documentaries, and films by survivors themselves? Elise MacAdam takes up this and other sticky questions with Aviva Weintraub, Director of Media and Public Programs for the Jewish Museum and Daniel Anker, director of the film, Imaginary Witness: Hollywood and the Holocaust, his entry in the current Jewish Film Festival presented by the Jewish Museum and the Film society of Lincoln Center.
