Professor Mamlock Screening and Discussion

Join the Toronto Jewish Film Festival, the Goethe-Institut Toronto, and the Neuberger as they introduce and discuss 1938's groundbreaking Professor Mamlock, which has been described as the first movie to depict the Holocaust. This Soviet-made movie, which was controversially banned in the United Kingdom, drew interest across Canada and the United States when it played.


Join us on June 24th at 7:00 PM, when Neuberger staff member Dan Panneton will introduce the movie by talking about Professor Mamlock's debut in Toronto, and the mixed audiences that it brought out. After the introduction, Professor Mamlock will be screened.


Return on June 25th at 7:00 PM for a Zoom panel discussion between Jutta Brendemuhl from the Goethe-Institut Toronto and Dan Panneton as they discuss the legacy of Professor Mamlock, it's 1961 East German remake, and antifascist cinema. 


Presented in partnership with the Toronto Jewish Film Festival and the Goethe-Institut Toronto.
