The Defiant Requiem Foundation presents a Screening of DEFIANT REQUIEM

158 Main Street
East Hampton, New York 11937

Murry Sidlin, President and Founder, and Patti Kenner, Board Member, cordially invite you and your guests to a screening of the documentary film DEFIANT REQUIEM. Produced by Partisan Pictures. DEFIANT REQUIEM is a feature-length documentary film that tells the extraordinary, untold story of the brave acts of resistance by Jewish prisoners at Theresienstadt (Terezín) during World War II. Rafael Schächter, a brilliant young Czech conductor, demonstrated moral leadership under brutal circumstances by sustaining hope and courage for his fellow prisoners by creating a prisoner choir and “singing to the Nazis what they dared not say.” This is a film about how a rare form of courage sparked compelling determination to survive by answering the worst of mankind with the best of mankind. Defiant Requiem was nominated for two Documentary Emmy Awards in 2014 for best writing and best feature length documentary. The film is the recipient of numerous awards and has been broadcast on PBS, BBC4, French TV and Globostat in Brazil.
