The other side of silence: a creative response to the aftermath of the Holocaust

An evening of film and conversation

Anne Karpf, author of ‘The War After: Living with the Holocaust’, in conversation with Caroline Pick, director of ‘Home Movie’.

Caroline Pick is an artist, film-maker and former commissioning editor at the BBC and Channel Four. It took her more than 50 years to delve into the box of home movies that her father had shot between the 1930s in Czechoslovakia and the 1960s in Britain. In ‘Home Movie’, her powerful new film about immigration and dislocation, she unearths the story that her parents hid.

After a screening, Karpf and Pick will discuss the film and the search, 70 years on, for a creative language through which to explore the Holocaust and its aftermath.

This event coincides with Refugee Week 2014, 16-22 June.
