As you may know this Friday, January 27th is designated as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. Let us remember the six million Jews, including 1.5 million children that were killed.
If you’re on or around campus on Friday there will be a free screening of the award winning 20 minute narrative film “When a Flame Stands Still.” The story is about an orthodox Jewish couple, in the midst of the Holocaust, who is forced to separate and go into hiding. Unable to see, hear, or touch one another, each reminisces about their love story from the day they first met to the day they parted… with only their memories and the dim glow of a lamp to soften the darkness. This CSUN senior film project from 2015 has screened at numerous film festivals including the Cannes Film Festival and won various awards including being on the Finalist Shortlist of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Student Film Awards.
The film will screen this Friday at 4pm in the Alan and Elaine Armer Screening Theater in Manzanita Hall. It will be presented in digital cinema with 5.1 surround sound. A short Q & A will take place afterwards with the director of the film Michael Canon, a 2015 alum. Seats are first come first served. Link to film trailer: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=3EIxladBaLc
