"The Labyrinth" Screening & Discussion with Fr. Ron Schmidt and Michael Berenbaum
Marian Kołodziej was on one of the first transports to enter Auschwitz. He survived and never spoke of his experience for 50 years. After a serious stroke in 1993, he began rehabilitation by doing pen and ink drawings depicting the experiences he and others endured in the concentration camp. In the documentary film "The Labyrinth," Kołodziej takes the audience on a journey that blends his testimony and graphic drawings. Why would a confrontation with death late in life trigger the need to record his long-suppressed memories? And why in a pictorial, metaphorical fashion? This documentary explores these questions in a visually stunning way. Join us for a special screening of “The Labyrinth” (37 minutes) via Zoom, followed by a discussion with producer Father Ron Schmidt, a Jesuit priest and award-winning documentary filmmaker, in conversation with renowned Holocaust scholar Dr. Michael Berenbaum.
