On the occasion of International Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27 January 2021, Cinemathek Jerusalem is cooperating with various festivals and film initiatives to make the restored version of Meyer Levin's THE ILLEGALS available for a joint online screening.
The film about the Bricha/escape of Jewish survivors after 1945 from Poland and other countries via the CSSR and especially Austria was filmed live. Many scenes take place in Vienna and in the snow-covered Alps and show the arduous marches. It is a doc film with a feature film plot.
After the screening, Frank Stern and the director's son Gabriel Levin will be available for Q&A.
This online screening is the start of an initiative for a EUROPEAN INSTITUTE FOR JEWISH FILM.
