A Song For You
Presented by the UIC Latino Cultural Center
In 1943 the Karp family escaped the Nazis by crossing the Pyrenees on foot with the help of the French Resistance. For five harrowing years, they were on the run, sometimes only steps ahead of Hitler’s troops. Carrying the burden of their parent’s trauma, the filmmaker and her sisters return to Europe to confront events of the past in an attempt to separate them from the present. The story is told through interviews with her mother, segments of a book her father wrote, home movies, photographs, documents and historical footage. A SONG FOR YOU is a story of survival through strength of will, luck, and the help of others.
Approx. 83 min.
Film screening followed by a discussion facilitated by Sharon Karp, director of the film, and Silvia Malagrino, co-director and professor in Photography at the School of Art and Art History at UIC.
