The Wild One film screening - Thursday, May 9, 1-3 pm

This award-winning 2022 film illuminates the journey of Jack Garfein - celebrated Broadway director, Actors Studio West co-founder, controversial filmmaker, and Holocaust survivor. Learn how his experience in Nazi concentration camps shaped his vision of acting as a survival mechanism and propelled his engagement with themes of violence, power, and racism in two explosive films. The Wild One examines the importance of Garfein's legacy as an artist who confronted censorship and reveals how art can draw on personal memory to better enlighten our present. This film screening is made possible by Jewish Story Partners and Good Docs. Made possible by the Toronto Public Library and their inaugural spring Jewish Heritage series.
