Film Professor Annette Insdorf curated “Cinema and the Holocaust: A Feminine Perspective” this January on behalf of Columbia Global Centers. The film series featured a total of eight films, four narrative and four documentary, that focused on the legacies of WWII and the Holocaust.

The series highlighted international filmmakers, including Michael Verhoeven’s Die Weiße Rose and Numbered by Uriel Sinai and Dana Doron. The festival focused on the experiences of women and films by female filmmakers, while also exploring themes of redemption or resistance and guilt or heroism.

The child of Holocaust Survivors, Professor Insdorf has been teaching at Columbia University’s School of the Arts for 27 years. She’s an internationally renowned educator and author (Francois Truffaut, Indelible Shadows: Film and Holocaust, Philip Kaufman) and her television show Reel Pieces with Annette Insdorf  recently aired on WNYC Life Channel 25.
