Jewish and Israeli Film Festival: Vishniac

He was difficult, flamboyant, and brilliant. Photographer and scientist Roman
Vishniac captured iconic images of Jewish life – from the cafes of pre-war
Berlin to the shtetls of Eastern Europe – all before fleeing Nazi Germany to
reinvent himself in America. Told through the eyes of his daughter Mara, this
documentary reconstructs his dramatic life, complicated relationships, and
breathtaking legacy.
