As Seen Through these Eyes

“As Seen Through these Eyes”, by Hilary Helstein

Screened on 20 January 2010

Runtime: 66′

The film As Seen Through These Eyes conveys images and messages from a number of eyewitnesses of the Holocaust. Hilary Helstein, the film’s writer, director and producer, travelled the world over the past decade to compile interviews with artists who survived the Holocaust. Narrated by Pulitzer Prize-nominated poet Maya Angelou, the words and the images of the survivor artists are profoundly moving, communicating horror and hope. For them, art was and still is a means of survival, either directly by saving their lives during the Holocaust or by helping them to endure and move forward from the unbearable past.

The film was followed by a Q&A session with film maker Hilary Helstein.
