Watch Defiant Requiem - Alternative Versions.
I saw 'Defiant Requiem' at the opening night of the DocuWeeks film
festival at the IFC in New York City. When I read there was a Holocaust
theme to this one, and that this film was on opening night, I knew
there had to be something new & unique and special about this film
and is there ever! Having seen many Holocaust docs over the years (like
so many of us), along comes this INCREDIBLE story that I had never
heard about before, and it is told quite beautifully here.
"Defiant Requiem" is an incredible story of the Nazi concentration camp
at Terezin, wherein many talented Czech artists were imprisoned and
it specifically tells the story of one Czech composer, Raphael
Schächter, who's idea it was to lead a performance of Verdi's "Requiem"
inside the camp. And it tells the parallel story of music conductor
Murry Sidlin who decades later went back to Terezin specifically to
perform "Requiem" again, quite beautifully, this time with survivors
from the camp. I don't really have the words let me just say this
story was completely new to me and had a profound impact on me,
particularly the incredible interviews with the survivors.
When the film was over, the whole crowd stayed still and silent all the
way through the final credit, before breaking out in applause. It was
such a profound experience to be educated on something completely new
relating to the Holocaust, and for the subject matter to be told with
such depth and compassion, but also restraint. The story was
sensational enough, the filmmakers wisely chose not to be manipulative
(which would have been easy in this case) they just told you and
showed you this story with honesty, clarity and genuine beauty
is what true documentary filmmaking should always be like.
I have no idea how wide the distribution is going to be on this film
NY and LA are lined up so far, maybe other cities? Maybe TV? I have no
idea, but if you come across this film SEE IT, you won't regret it.
