A rare chance to see the whole of the French filmmaker Claude Lanzmann’s 9.5 hour Holocaust documentary.
Shoah consists of interviews with Holocaust survivors, bystanders and perpetrators, some secretly recorded with a hidden camera, all of which are fascinating as eyewitness testimony and as cinematic spectacle. Lanzmann spent 12 years working on this epic film, which was hailed as an unforgettable masterpiece as soon as it was released.
The screening starts at 10.00, ending at approximately 20.00 with a discussion: comments from academics in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities followed by an audience Q&A. It will be divided into three sections with short breaks in between: audience members are welcome to join us at any time, and to stay for as long or as little as they wish.
