Goodbye Theresienstadt | Directed by Jonatan Jerichow and Carl Otto Dethlefsen | 58 min. Feature Documentary | Czech Republic/Denmark, 2015.

The survival of six Danish Jews from the Theresienstadt concentration camp illustrates what Denmark did to save the Danish Jewish population, getting most of them to safety, and trying to protect those who were captured and interned.

Tadaima | Directed by Robin Takao D'Oench | 16 min. Short | USA, 2015.

George, Akiko, Kaori, and Kazuo return to their former house in the summer of 1945, following the end of World War II and the closure of the Japanese American Internment camps. Arriving home, they find the house ransacked by vandals and in a state of disrepair. Emotions flair and each individual member of the family react differently to the homecoming. While rebuilding their home, the family is able to recover a takarabako, a chest of memorable items that had to be left behind before the evacuation, bringing the family closer together. As the day draws to a close, there is a glimmer of hope that the future holds better days.

I Married My Family's Killer | Directed by Emily Kassie | 31 min. Short Documentary, Student |  Canada, USA, 2014. 

Beatrice and Purudenci were childhood sweethearts. They planned to be wed. The only problem was that it was 1994 in Rwanda and Beatrice was being hunted. To make matters were, Purudenci's family were the hunters.
