My Name Is Sara Film Screening and Panel Discussion

August 23, 2021 @ 7:00 pm | Free

7:00 PM MDT / 6:00 PM PDT / 9:00 PM EDT

In partnership with Aspen Film, the event series opens with a screening and special panel discussion of the award-winning feature film My Name Is Sara. The film is based on the true story of 13-year-old Sara Góralnik, who, after escaping a Jewish Ghetto in Poland and losing her family at the outset of the Holocaust, hides in plain sight, passing as an Orthodox Christian, and ultimately survives against all odds.

The screening will be introduced by Aspen Film Executive + Artistic Director Susan Wrubel. A panel will follow featuring USC Shoah Foundation Executive Committee Board Members and Executive Producers Mickey Shapiro, whose mother Sara is the inspiration for the film, and Andy Intrater, along with the film’s Producer/Director Steven Oritt. The discussion will be moderated by the film’s Co-Producer and USC Shoah Foundation Finci-Viterbi Executive Director Dr. Stephen D. Smith.
