“A must-see Holocaust movie (no, really) … FOUR WINTERS is a documentary with suspense, humor, and zero sentimentality… It’s surprising, moving, horrifying …and sometimes shockingly funny.” – Marjorie Ingall, Tablet Magazine
A special screening presented by the Berkshire International Film Festival – FOUR WINTERS: A Story of Jewish Partisan Resistance & Bravery During WWII, winner of Steven Spielberg’s Jewish Story Partners Grant and “Best Documentary” at the Toronto Jewish Film Festival 2022.
Following the screening there will be a talkback with the film’s director, Julia Mintz, and Partisan Michael Stoll, whose story is featured in FOUR WINTERS.
From deep within the forests of WWII’s Belarus and Eastern Europe, over 25,000 Jewish partisans fought back against the Nazis and their collaborators. Despite extraordinary odds, these determined men and women, many barely in their teens, engaged in life-saving missions and treacherous acts of sabotage; blowing up trains, burning electric stations, and attacking armed enemy headquarters. Shattering the myth of Jewish passivity, the last surviving partisans tell their stories of resistance in FOUR WINTERS, revealing a stunning narrative of heroism and resilience.
