Convoys of Shame / Les Convois de la honte
Raphaël Delpard | France | 2010 | 109mm
U.S. Premiere
This incisive documentary examines how the SNCF (the French national rail company) used its trains and its extensive infrastructure to transport tens of thousands of Jews, Roma, and members of the resistance from France to Nazi concentration camps from 1940 to 1944. Accounts from eyewitnesses, historians, and attorneys are supplemented by elegant reconstitutions. Also examined is the creation of an exaggerated myth of resistance among railroad workers.

The Roundup / La Rafle
Roselyne Bosch | France/Germany/Hungary | 2010 | 124mm
New York Premiere
Paris, 1942, saw the infamous “Vel d’Hiv” roundups of 13,000 Parisian Jews, including 4,000 children. With a meticulously constructed script based on extensive research and first-hand accounts, writer/director Bosch brings to the screen one of the most moving dramas of the year. This wrenching film, which follows a group of young children, is powered by fluid direction and a string of stars including Jean Reno (The Da Vinci Code) and Mélanie Laurent (Inglourious Basterds).
Roselyne Bosch, director, and Alain Goldman, producer, will be in attendance.
