Showtimes and location

Film description

The monumental documentary Shoah, which recounts the story of the Holocaust through interviews with witnesses - perpetrators as well as survivors - was a landmark achievement by all participants including principal editor Ziva Postec. Working with director Claude Lanzmann from 1979 to 1985, Ziva Postec selected from 350 hours of footage that she ‘edited like lacework’ and punctuated with shots of the ‘guilty landscape’, before ultimately collapsing from exhaustion for three months.

Shoah is screening at LIFF 2019 over two days with First Era followed by Second Era, each with intervals.
