A Morning in September: a Film Requiem (26 min)

 

This hour-long evening of short films features Director Sara Winter’s powerful A Morning in September, a meditation on grief and loss. The film includes footage shot on September 11 and immediately thereafter, set to a Monteverdi aria – “Possente Spirto,” Orpheus’s petition to cross the River Styx to his loved one – and a John Dowland song, “Come Heavy Sleep”.  The singer, representing the Voice of New York, acapella, pleads to cross the river to the loved one, “a soul shorn of its body”, over footage of the World Trade Center smoke filmed from the New Jersey side, and of vehicle and rescue workers at the staging area on the New York side. The film is an emotionally challenging and powerful reminder of human stories that should never be overshadowed by time and distance, or forgotten.

Directed by Holly Dale and Janis Cole, this riveting documentary embraces the accomplishments of women in front of and behind the camera. It is a heartfelt look at contemporary women who are directing dramatic feature films throughout the world today. Utilizing film clips and candid interviews with directors, producers, screenwriters and actresses, Calling the Shots focuses on the diversity of films being made by women, the power structure of the industry, and the women who hold such power. Cole and Dale delicately weave an entertaining yet compelling tale of women's struggle and acceptance in the film industry. The result is a powerful documentary that not only explores the unique contribution of women to film but illuminates the personal side of these women's accomplishments.

Film:Raoul Wallenberg: Buried Alive (78 minutes: 1984)

Directed by David Harel, this film carefully reconstructs the true story of a young man who became one of the great heroes of World War II without ever wearing a uniform or firing a gun.  Raoul Wallenberg, a wealthy Swedish Protestant, personally saved the lives of at least 100,000 Hungarian Jews from the Nazi Holocaust.  In accomplishing this feat, Wallenberg himself disappeared into the unfathomable labyrinths of the Soviet prisons. Buried Alive provides the most detailed and moving exploration of one of the modern world’s heroic tragedies.
