CALENDAR OF EVENTS for 2017

Australian premiere of 'Santa’s Story', presented in association with the Jewish Holocaust Centre and starring Aviva Pelham.

When 90-year-old Santa Pelham was persuaded to write her fascinating life story it was intended just so her memoir would be there for future generations. But Santa's Story became something more: a cathartic Jewish experience, an inspiration for song and recently, a one woman show performed by her daughter, South African diva, Aviva Pelham.

Defiant Requiem, a feature-length documentary film, highlights the most dramatic example of intellectual and artistic courage in the Theresienstadt (Terezín) Concentration Camp during World War II: the remarkable story of Rafael Schächter, a brilliant, young Czech conductor who was arrested and sent to Terezín in 1941. He demonstrated moral leadership under the most brutal circumstances, determined to sustain courage and hope for his fellow prisoners by enriching their souls through great music.
