Korkoro Screening and Discussion
Sunday, January 27, 2pm, Regent Square Theater (1035 S Braddock Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15218)
The Holocaust Center will mark International Holocaust Remembrance Day with a screening of the French drama Korkoro. Korkoro (“Alone” in the Romanes) tells the story of a Romani family trying to evade the Nazis while traveling through France. It also illustrates French members of the resistance.
The film premiered at the Montréal World Film Festival, winning the Grand Prize of the Americas, amongst other awards. It was released in France as Liberté in February 2010. It has been described as a “rare cinematic tribute” to those killed in the Porajmos, or the Romani genocide by the Nazis during World War II.
The event will include a discussion with an expert on the Romani experience.
Tickets are $10, free for Holocaust survivors and students with valid ID.
