Hidden Face
Director: Eyal Datz | Israel | 2018 | Documentary | Hebrew | English Subtitles | 54mins

Through the heroic story of a rabbi known as “The Admor of Sanz-Klausenburg,” this documentary presents the complex relationship between ultra-Orthodox Jews and the memory of the Holocaust. Through rare archival footage and interviews it reveals the ways we experience the revival and spiritual victory over the Nazis and pass it on to the ensuing generations, while dealing with the biggest question of all—where was God during the Holocaust?

Sponsored by The Consulate General of Israel in Hong Kong & Macau

The Light of Fire

A touching film that tells the story of Yoram Raanan, an American-Israeli artist, as he rebuilds following a sudden fire that destroyed forty years of work. It’s a story about resolve in the face of loss, but also about faith, family and searching for a sense of place.
