New Haven, CT – CLAL and Power Story Entertainment presents the New England premiere, Making Light in Terezin, a documentary by Filmmaker/Playwright and Woodbridge-native Richard Krevolin, on Saturday, June 1 at Lyric Hall (827 Whalley Avenue) in Westville. This remarkable film tells the true story of how, in the darkest days of WWII, Jewish prisoners fought back against the Nazis…by singing, dancing and laughing.
Three screenings are scheduled: 12 p.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. and each includes a discussion and Q&A with Richard Krevolin as well as a book signing. The 7 p.m. screening features a wine and cheese reception. The film’s companion piece, Making Light in Terezin: The Show Helps Us Go On, co-written with Nancy Cohen, a Bethany-native, will be available for purchase following the screening.
