The next film in the Sandra and Mendel Rosenberg Sunday Afternoon Film Series will be Mr. Klein, screening at 1:00 pm on March 27 in the Holocaust Museum’s theatre in the Jewish Federation of St. Louis’ Kopolow Building, 12 Millstone Campus Drive. Alain Delon and Jeanne Moreau star in this suspenseful film set in Paris in 1942. Catholic art dealer, Robert Klein, thrives under Nazi occupation until he realizes there is another “Mr. Klein,” a Jew involved in anti-Nazi resistance. Mr. Klein, a 1976 film directed by Joseph Losey, will screen in French, with English subtitles, with a running time of 123 minutes.
Introductory remarks and a post screening discussion will be facilitated by Pier Marton, presently the “Unlearning Specialist” at the School of No Media. He has lectured and screened his films at Yad Vashem and other institutions, both nationally and international and he has taught at several U.S. universities. Marton’s father, photographer Ervin Marton, was in the Resistance. Films in this Sunday series are free and open to the public, although reservations are requested.
