The Rescue: A Live Film-Concerto

Sunday, April 14, 2019 @ 7:00 PM
Temple B'nai Tikvah
- 900 - 47 Avenue SW, Calgary, AB
$10 General Admission

This unique event experience combines a 70-minute documentary with a live musical performance of its soundtrack. The event will recount the little-known story of Colonel José Arturo Castellanos, the Salvadoran diplomat recognized as Righteous among the Nations by Yad Vashem.

This ground-breaking film-concerto concept was developed by filmmakers Alvaro and Boris Castellanos, grandsons of Colonel Castellanos. This emotionally engaging and uplifting method of telling their grandfather’s story has become a powerful tool for Holocaust education and commemoration.

The Live Film-Concerto has been performed in Germany, Argentina, Chile, Panama, Costa Rica, Canada and China. In Germany the film was presented at the former seat of the Nazi Reich Bank and at the Topographie des Terrors Museum – the former Nazi SS and Gestapo headquarters in Berlin. The live musical performance is directed by Boris and Alvaro Castellanos (who play piano and bass respectively), along with a Latin chamber music and Latin Jazz sextet.

Screening will be at 7 pm, Q & A with Film Makers at 8:30 pm followed by a dessert reception.
