resistanceLong 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), and director and screenwriter Jonathan Jakubowicz (Hands of StoneSecuestro Express).
