The Wallis and the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival Presents
A SCREENING OF THE ASSEMBLY: A NEW MUSICAL FILM & LIVE MUSICAL PERFORMANCE BY HERSHEY FELDER
May 24, 20237:30 PM
The Assembly, a film written and directed by Hershey Felder and filmed in Poland, was inspired by the work of Holocaust survivor Eva Libitzky, who lost all of her family in the Holocaust during World War II. For the last 40 years of her life, Libitzky made it her mission to tell her harrowing life story at hundreds of school assemblies to ensure the young people of America never forget what happened in Europe 80 years ago. Libitzky, 97, passed away in 2021 at her home in Florida, but this new documentary-style film featuring eight former students of the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts (SDSCPA) will carry on her legacy. Watch the trailer here.
Stay after the film screening for a Q&A with Hershey Felder and Moses Libitzky, moderated by Hilary Helstein, Executive Director of the LA Jewish Film Festival, and a concert performance by Hershey Felder and student artists in the film.
