Redemption Blues: Screening and Discussion

This event is part of Giorno della Memoria under the auspices of the Consulate General of Italy and in collaboration with Centro Primo Levi. Additional information available at www.primolevicenter.org.

Redemption Blues
(2017, Documentary, 84 min.)

Directed by Peter Stastny

Produced by Peter Stastny, Lucia Schrenk, Roland Hablesreiter – Transmitter Film

Followed by a discussion between director Peter Statsny and Paola Mieli (Après-coup Psychoanalytic Association)

Redemption Blues, a film about the onerous legacy of the Holocaust, begins where conventional Shoah narratives leave off and traces a path forward, exploring redemption through the second generation’s point of view. At a time when the last members of the survivor generation are bidding us farewell, and historical witnessing cannot endure, Redemption Blues engages with emotional and political vestiges that are yet to be resolved.

The film is presented as an artistic reckoning and a deeply personal journey into the future of living with the legacy of the Holocaust. The perspectives of survivors and the guiding narrative of the filmmaker are woven into a stream of music that runs from nostalgia and religious sources into an ocean of free, improvisational creation. Could this be a way forward, given the many spiritual and political fallacies?
