Voyages, dir., Emmanuel Finkiel (1999, France, 111 min.)

 Few films have dealt with the Holocaust as freshly and gracefully as this haunting, subtle film.  Set in prest day Paris, Tel Aviv and Poland, Voyages concerns three Jewish women at the cross roads of life who are linked by diaspora meory, and displacement. - New Yorker Films

 Emmanuel Finkiel’s debut film Voyages elegantly and wistfully courses through three countries, over two continents, and in several languages, exploring the emotional landscape of the last generation of Holocaust survivors as they struggle to make peace with their uprooted pasts before it’s too late. Divided into discrete portions,Voyages serves up a trilogy of seemingly unrelated female characters whose destinies don’t so much collide (for that would be too easy) as they do casually intermingle – as if they were somehow cosmically joined by fate. - Indiewire

 This program is FREE and open to the general public.

This LVAC Film Night screening was organized by John Gianvito.
