SFJFF Presents: August's Online Short

SFJFF Presents: August's Online Short

 Vishneva, Belarus Soviet Union Poland

Director Jacob J. Podber's short film -- silent images from the interview of a Holocaust survivor superimposed with typed memories -- describes the unspoken pain borne by a father and son through more than half a century. Simple and poignant, the film was shown in the SFJFF34 Jews in Shorts Documentary program.
