THURSDAY, JULY 30, 7:00 PM – ZOOM Special Event – Meet SAUL & RUBY’s producer-director, TOD LENDING
USA, 2019/Documentary, 80 minutes/English, Polish w/English subtitles/Written and directed by Tod Lending (unrated – contains graphic images)
Saul plays the drums and Ruby plays the accordion, and together these delightful nonagenarians form the core of the first (if not the only) Holocaust Survivors Band, in this heartwarming study of two life forces that can’t quit. The duo performs for anyone who will listen, but they do have a goal: to return to their native Poland – a place where both endured unimaginable trauma during WWII – to play their music and to spread their message of tolerance and peace. An exhilarating story of resilience and healing, family and love, Saul & Ruby: To Life! is nothing short of irresistible.
