BEHOLD: A Film of Holocaust Poetry




The Idea


BEHOLD will pose the large human questions regarding the nature of evil, human nature, God’s place in an immoral world, the direction of history, and how we find hope in the face of genocide. BEHOLD will call upon viewers to turn to poetry to help rediscover a vision of a just humanity.

The Specifics

BEHOLD will be an artistically innovative film marrying the power of cinema and the spoken word to give each poem its own unique form and style. With an open ended look and feel it will draw the viewer in to engage with the interactive energy of each piece. This feast of language will be presented using sensitive performances by a renowned list of international actors and poets, accompanied by dynamic, imaginative cinematic interpretations, evocative music, and sound design. BEHOLD will be an adventurous film designed to extend visual, spoken, and written poetic language to the online generation. For world-wide TV, museums, net audiences. Recognition, reputation, and an internet community will build on social media platforms.

Thank you for your insightful comments! Yes to BEHOLD. The world forgets its genocides quickly, and unfortunately there have been many, We want to use this film to offer a new and poetic way to remember and to ask people to live more just lives.

THis sounds like a terrific idea. Brava Janet for continuing the good fight to keep the Holocaust alive
in the minds, eyes , ears of the forgetful generations which have followed.
Many of our contemporaries including artists and "intellectuals" turn up their noses at the fact that
the Holocaust still shadows the world with its unresolved horror. The need for Israel is questioned
scorned. So YES to BEHOLD.

Thanks to all who have voted. This is an important film as survivors die each day and memory now falls to the next generations. Holocaust memory is important because people keep killing. BEHOLD will allow viewers to remember in new and interesting ways and will invite the audience to act against injustice.
