    "Four Winters" Movie Premier

    Sunday, Apr 28th 2:30a to 5:00p
    The Louisiana premiere of the documentary "Four Winters" will be on Sunday, April 28 at 2:30 p.m. at the Robinson Film Center. Director and Producer Julia Mintz will be in attendance to introduce the film, and for a Question and Answer session afterward. The film focuses on Jewish individuals who fought back against the Nazis during World War II. “All I owned was my camera, a leopard coat, and a grenade in case of capture...the pillow was the rifle, the walls were the trees and the sky was the roof,” says partisan Faye Schulman. Over 25,000 Jewish partisans fought back against the Nazis and their collaborators from deep within the forests of WWII’s Eastern Europe, Ukraine and Belarus. Against extraordinary odds, they escaped Nazi slaughter, transforming from young innocents to courageous resistance fighters. Shattering the myth of Jewish passivity, these last surviving partisans tell their stories of resistance in FOUR WINTERS, revealing a stunning narrative of heroism and resilience. Tickets may be purchased through the Robinson Film Center for $25. The ticket price includes the film, Q and A, and a reception afterward.
