Description

REDEMPTION BLUES Invitational Screening

Documentary, 83 minutes

by Peter Stastny

with music by Anthony Coleman, Frank London and Marc Ribot.


A life-time after the Shoah:

Forgetting is not an option and memory only goes so far.

Prayers are not enough, but music keeps us going.

It's not too late to mourn,

And not too soon to replenish.

In the film shot in New York, Vienna, Oswiecim and Bethlehem, the director engages with several outspoken survivors whose lives were shaped by their experiences more than 70 years ago. Their ways of rising above the despair and loss from that disaster frames the emotional landscape that holds some of the deep questions the world is left with today. In the end, we take solace in small moments of homecoming and repair.
