Now Showing @ ALA: Defiant Requiem Other Las Vegas Convention Center
N242
Description :

DEFIANT REQUIEM tells the little-known story of the Nazi concentration camp, Terezin. Led by imprisoned conductor Rafael Schächter, the inmates of Terezin fought back...with art and music. Through hunger, disease and slave labor, the Jewish inmates of Terezin hold onto their humanity by staging plays, composing opera and using paper and ink to record the horrors around them.

This creative rebellion reaches its peak when Schächter teaches a choir of 150 inmates one of the world's most difficult and powerful choral works, Verdi's Requiem, re-imagined as a condemnation of the Nazis. The choir would ultimately confront the Nazis face to face... and sing to them what they dare not say.

For over ten years, conductor Murry Sidlin dreamed of bringing the Requiem back to Terezin. That dream was realized in 2006 when he assembled a chorus and orchestra at Terezin for a memorial performance of the Verdi Requiem. Now, through soaring concert footage, powerful survivor recollections, cinematic dramatizations and evocative animation, DEFIANT REQUIEM brings the incredible story of Schächter and this artistic uprising to life. Murry Sidlin will be present to introduce the film and to answer questions.

DEFIANT REQUIEM is being presented in association with the ALA Public Programs Office, promoting cultural and community programming as an essential part of library service.
