Yediot Achronot, Israel
Getting ready for the Seattle Jewish Film Festival.
On the “menu”:
An exhibition of Vitch’s FORTY brilliant caricatures
A Brown Derby cake reception
A book sale (the perfect companion to the exhibition as the book is mainly about his portraits)
And a screening of course!
Looking forward to seeing you there!
I loved how journalist Shlomo Ben David described Vitch in the Israeli newspaper Maariv (January 24th). Although it was a brief article, it was one of the best written on the movie. Along with a photograph of a smiling Eddie Vitch standing on stage surrounded by glamorous, bare-legged dancers, he wrote “Vitch is a completely different narrative of that brutal time period than the one we are familiar with, informed by humor, humanity, artistic talent, and astonishing courage.”
