      Rhona Arenstein and Rosann Bocciarelli are two friends who were the driving force to bring “A Blessing to One Another: Pope John Paul II and the Jewish People” to Richmond. The exhibit is on display at the Virginia Holocaust Museum and will be there until the end of May. The exhibit draws its name from the Pope's 1993 appeal marking the 50th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto uprising: “As Christians and Jews, following the example of the faith of Abraham, we are called to be a blessing to the world. This is the common task awaiting us. It is therefore necessary for us, Christians and Jews, to first be a blessing to one another.” Both Ms. Arenstein and Ms. Bocciarelli are volunteers at the Virginia Holocaust Museum and hope that everyone has the opportunity to visit this incredible exhibit.

      • A Blue Hole in the Sky

        This is the opening scene of 2008 award winning film A Blue Hole in the Sky. It dissolves to another part of the film, where schoolchildren commemorate the genocide on gypsies at the Amsterdam Museumplein, where the Roma anthem Djelem, djelem is performed. This probing film tells the touching story of twelve people who survived the second World War and talk about it for the first time, thus breaking a taboo. Through sometimes violent and also beautiful images and stories, the spectator is sucked in by a piece of history that everybody has always kept silent about up to now. Taking into account that the war is taboo and is never discussed, most certainly not in front of a camera, Bob Entrop has been able to make a unique and special film. As a result of a growing trust and the friendships that have development in the past few years between the Sinti and Roma and filmmaker Bob Entrop, they were willing to go public with their story for the first time. This film is a journey through time. In the present, we travel with three people to Auschwitz, and at the same time we travel with the others back into the past, to the time in which almost a million Sinti and Roma, gipsies, were murdered.

                  ABSENT GOD is a documentary film about the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas, one of the foremost thinkers of the 20th century. Inspired by modern philosophy and ancient Jewish texts, Levinas developed the “humanism of the other”, in which people are called to listen to “the silent word of the human face”. This film juxtaposes the philosophy of Levinas with the Israeli reality of 2012, where seculars and religious, Muslims and Jews, poor and rich - live in a permanent conflict under a sky of an absent God. “The skin of the face is that which stays most naked, most destitute. The face is meaning all by itself, it leads you beyond.” - Emmanuel Levinas

                    "Fascinating. A film about the difficulty, the impossibility, of language when the subject is unspeakable." -- Michael Silverblatt, KCRW. "Brilliant! A meaningful document of denial." -- Arnold Schwartzman (Academy Award Winner, GENOCIDE) For over a hundred years, Mărculeşti was a vibrant Jewish agricultural and mercantile community in Bessarabia (now present-day Moldova). In July 1941, the village was the site of an unimaginable atrocity. Seventy-three years later, few speak clearly or honestly about what happened. ABSENT is a cinematic portrait of the ghost village of Mărculeşti, its current inhabitants, and their very complex relationship to their own history. Working entirely on location, filmmaker Matthew Mishory documents one of Europe's poorest, most remote, and least-visited places. Written and Directed by Matthew Mishory. Sabin Dorohoi, Edward Singletary, Jr., and Randall Walk, Producers. Michael Marius Pessah, Cinematographer. Marc Cohen, Co-Writer and Editor. Borja Sau Razquin, Sound. Trailer Music, Gilead Mishory. An Iconoclastic Features Motion Picture, in association with Western Transylvania Studios and Willona Prod Suisse. A US-Romanian-Swiss Co-Production. Premiering in 2015. www.absentfilm.com

                      This film is intended to be an allegory for the German Nazis facing their crimes after the Holocaust, but it also raises a universal question: how do perpetrators shed their mask of innocence and confront their own monsters, without being torn apart by the guilt? Is there any way to find true absolution for actions one cannot reverse? A big thank you to my brother for helping me film several sequences. Song: You Took Your Time by Mount Kimbie ft King Krule
