2:00PM – Vitch
(2017, documentary, English, 77min)

A daughter tells the story of the controversial choices that her father, a Jewish artist from Poland, made in order to survive the Holocaust. Eddie Vitch, aka Ignace Levkovitch, was performing in Paris when the Nazis invaded. The Nazi officer who saw him sent him to perform in Germany. His humanity and flaws as an artist trying to survive one of history’s darkest times provides an arc of colors in a time period otherwise presented in black and white.

Director: Sigal Bujman
