Film Preview: "Woman of Gold" (2015)

Event Date: Sunday 31 May | Venue: Classic Cinema
Published on: Thursday, 12 March 2015 00:23

Special film screening presented by the Friends of the Jewish Holocaust Centre of "Woman of Gold" (2015) Starring Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Brühl. Directed by Simon Curtis.

Academy Award winner Helen Mirren stars in the incredible story of Maria Altmann, a Jewish refugee who is forced to flee Vienna during World War II. Decades later, determined to salvage some dignity from her past, Maria has taken on a mission to reclaim a painting the Nazis stole from her family: the famous ‘Lady In Gold’, a portrait of her beloved Aunt Adele.

Holocaust survivor Henri Korn will be the subject of a portrait to be submitted for the annual prestigious Archibald Prize, to be judged by the trustees of the NSW Art Gallery.

Korn, who was born in Germany, was barely 9 years old when he witnessed the murder of his young friend, Leo Troski, and Leo’s parents, during Kristallnacht (The Night of the Broken Glass) – the widespread destruction of hundreds of synagogues in Germany and  Austria, the murder of almost 100 Jews and attacks on Jewish property in November 1938.
