Film screening: The Soap Myth
This film version of the play The Soap Myth is an interesting story that provokes discussion. More than a half-century after World War II at the desperate urging of a passionate survivor, a young investigative reporter finds herself caught between numerous versions of the same story. Played out against the backdrop of deadline reporting and journalistic integrity, the critically acclaimed The Soap Myth by Jeff Cohen questions who has the right to write history — those people who have lived it and remember, those who study and protect it or those who would seek to distort its very existence? And finally what is all our responsibility once we know the truth?
Arnold Mittelman, the producing artistic director, will introduce the film and take questions afterward. He is the president and producing artistic director of the nonprofit National Jewish Theater/Foundation, which celebrates the cultural significance of Jewish history and the creativity of Jewish American composers, lyricists, playwrights and performers.
