Resistance Film Discussion

Recorded on Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Long before he rose to international fame as a mime, Marcel Marceau put his fledgling career as an artist on hold to spirit Jewish refugee children out of Nazi-occupied France, even as his own father was murdered at Auschwitz. Watch the extraordinary new film Resistance, about that little-known chapter of Marceau’s life, and then join our discussion with the film’s star, Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Bella Ramsey who plays Elsbeth, and director and screenwriter Jonathan Jakubowicz (Hands of StoneSecuestro Express).

Resistance is available on multiple streaming platforms. Watch at home.

IFCPresented by the Rutgers Jewish Film Festival in partnership with IFC Films and Tamar Simon of Mean Streets Management.


Moderated by Karen Small.
