Alexis Krasilovsky

Exile () DVD NTSC, , min

Genre: Documentary

"Alexis Krasilovsky's EXILE offers both a personal and historical perspective on intolerance. Tracing the roots of her family over 200 years to the small town of Nikolsburg, Czechoslovakia, Krasilovsky's 28-minute film returns to the place where generations of persecution for her Jewish ancestors began. In Prague, in Vienna where some Jews still hide their heritage behind a Protestant facade, in Dachau where Krasilovsky's pianist uncle's hands were frozen, and in New York where she grew up, the filmmaker exposes a history of exile, fear, hiding and imprisonment and brings to life a rich world of art and learning shattered by the Holocaust." -- The Independent
