Saratoga Jewish Cultural Festival – Movie Documentary (with English sub-titles) -The Two Mariettes

July 17 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Two Mariettes

“What would my classmates think if they found out I was Jewish when, in most of our classes, something was said against us,” Mariette Diamant asks herself. For more than seven decades, this woman -who escaped with her parents from Nazi-occupied France during WWII- would hide the Jewish origins of her family for fear of retaliation. But at 90, Mariette decides to shed light on that past that haunts her, tell her story and reveal her true identity with the sole aim of freeing herself from those wounds that won’t heal, from that pain that never ceases. In the last part of a documentary trilogy about the Holocaust’s ghosts in Argentina, writer-director Poli Martínez Kaplun seizes one of the most powerful tools of cinema— the capability of turning into the perfect counteroffensive for omission.
