This screening is in memory of Arthur Brauner, one of postwar Germany’s most successful film producers. Brauner died this past summer in Berlin aged 100. He made more than 500 pictures, including masterpieces grappling with the Nazi past such as Europa, Europa and The Garden of the Finzi-Continis. Born in 1918 in Lodz as the son of a wood merchant, Brauner escaped death in the Nazi extermination camps; he was one of 800 survivors out of 250,000 Jews from Lodz.
