SAUL & RUBY'S HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR BAND
2020, Tod Lending, USA, 81 min.
This unique and compelling story is about having the courage to live one’s dreams, finding purpose and meaning in life at any age, the transcendent power of music, and the importance of speaking out against anti-Semitism and bigotry.
After World War II, Holocaust survivors Saul and Ruby moved to America, started families and careers, grew old, and retired to South Florida. Retirement could have been the last chapter in their story, but they decided to start a klezmer band, named the Holocaust Survivor Band. In this utterly heart-affecting and enthralling film, Oscar-nominated director Lending (LEGACY) follows their musical journey, which includes a performance at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, and an emotionally significant plan to return to Poland to perform triumphantly in honor of their dead loved ones.
