Community Documentary Film Series: "Strange Victory" | Interdisciplinary Programs

Wednesday, February 27 at 7:15pm

Frank Banko Alehouse Cinemas - ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks 101 Founder’s Way, Bethlehem, PA 18015

This rarely seen, stylistically bold documentary equals the visual, poetic brilliance of Battleship Potemkin and I am Cuba while delivering an extraordinary cry from the heart to make a better place for our children. Skillfully combining documentary footage of World War II battles, postwar refugees, and the Nuremberg trials with powerful dramatic re-enactments, Hurwitz wove an extraordinary cinematic portrait of postwar American Fascism. How could it be, the film asked, that servicemen returned home from defeating a racist and genocidal enemy found the United States plagued by racism, Jim Crow, anti-Semitism, anti-Catholicism, and xenophobia?

Free and open to the public. Panel discussions follow screenings.
