The Jewish Barry Levinson on Film with Eric Goldman

Hosted By: Orange County Community Scholar Program (CSP)

As a youth, Academy-award winning director Barry Levinson had Holocaust-survivor relatives stay at his family’s home. Their visit made a great impression on him and he inserted such a visit in his 1990 film classic, Avalon.

Now, Levinson has just finished a new film, The Survivor, about a concentration camp inmate who was made into a boxer for the entertainment of his Nazi guards. The film focuses not only on what happened during the Shoah, but on how this survivor adapts to American life after the war. These movies and other films by Levinson, like Diner and Liberty Heights, provide great insight into the American Jewish experience, the subject of this lecture with film clips.
