Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor presents the film screening of “Four Winters” directed, written, and produced by Julia Mintz, on Sunday, October 8, at 7 PM. The screening will be followed by a “talk back” and Q&A with Julia Mintz.
The critically acclaimed film about Jewish Resistance Fighters in World War II was written, produced, and directed by filmmaker Julia Mintz and was the winner of “Best Documentary” at the Toronto Jewish Film Festival and the winner of the “Human Rights Award” at the Hamptons Documentary Film Festival.
“All I owned was my camera, leopard coat, rifle, and a grenade in case I’m captured… the pillow was the rifle, the walls were the trees and the sky was the roof,” said Faye Schulman, one of over 25,000 Jewish partisans, who fought back against the Nazis and their collaborators from deep within the forests of WWII’s Eastern Europe, Ukraine, and Belarus.
Against extraordinary odds, they escaped Nazi slaughter, transforming from young innocents raised in closely-knit families to courageous resistance fighters.
