Special Screening of "The Danish Solution: The Rescue of the Jews in Denmark" (2003), Denmark/USA.

Directed by Karen Cantor and Camilla Kjaerilff and Narrated by Garrison Keillor. Guest Speaker: Karen Cantor

The Danish Solution is about humanity in action. This evocative documentary film tells the story of the rescue of Danish Jews during WWII.  When ordinary Danes heard that the Jews would be rounded up, many offered help. Person after person did what they could to hide their Jewish neighbors.  Especially today, with a tidal wave of refugees risking their lives to find safety, The Danish Solution documents how individual action changed the course of history and asks each one of us what we would do to help others in peril.

JHC Film Club will be screening "Miss Sarajevo” (1995) 33 mins, USA. Directed by Bill Carter. Guest Speaker: Associate Professor Hariz Halilovich, RMIT

Miss Sarajevo is a surreal and startling portrait of Sarajevo, the capital city of Bosnia, during the height of the city’s siege. Winner of the International Monitor Award, Golden Hugo, and the Maverick Director Award (Newport Beach Film Festival). Instead of following the scenes of carnage that the main media so often squeezes into thirty second dramatic sound bites, Carter’s camera follows the alternative scene of artists, young people and the people determined to live as normal a life as they could under the most difficult and dangerous conditions.
