Scandal in Ivansk

May 10 @ 5:00 pm - 6:15 pm

Scandal in Ivansk
(2017, documentary, English, Polish w/subtitles, 78min)

Filmmaker David Blumenfeld thought he would be documenting a piece of family history as he filmed the descendants of his grandfather’s shtetl, Ivansk, as they restored a long-neglected Jewish cemetery. Little did anyone know that unearthing the past in one small corner of Poland would ultimately unleash a national scandal, sparked by a single word.

Writers/Directors: David Blumenfeld, Ami Drozd

Supported by the University of Michigan’s Copernicus Program in Polish Studies.
