We want to bring this PBS premiere to your attention.
Our film "We Remember: Songs of Survivors" will premiere on PBS on April 26th, 2022 at 8pm EST and PBS.org.
This documentary is the story of two Hudson Valley organizations collaborating to bring Holocaust survivors and singer songwriters together- SageArts and Jewish Family Service of Orange County. They forged meaningful relationships and the songwriters were able to turn their life experiences into powerful music for a community concert.
The resulting songs, filled with joy and healing, celebrate the extraordinary lives of this resilient generation.
You can see more details and the film's trailer here: We Remember: Songs of Survivors www.weremembersongsofsurvivors.com Also- PBS announcement: https://www.pbs.org/show/we-remember-songs-survivors/
Thanks once again to all who supported this project as we strove to complete it. At a time when we are faced with the horrors of war and what it takes to survive, we witness painful memories shared and transformed into beautiful music and celebration. Resilience and hope for the future.
Our best, Ilene Cutler Tim Miller Producers

Bevival introduces monthly programming at the Rosendale Theatre
AGING THROUGH THE NARRATIVE LENS
High-value series explores the process, wisdom, and power of aging
Monthly screenings and discussions begin Nov 6th at 2pm
Now in its 4th year, Celebrating Aging in Film© comes to the Rosendale Theatre with a monthly series that explores the aging narrative. Curated programming includes discussions with guests from the arts, culture, gerontology, healthcare, social sciences, and academia.
The series kicks off with the award-winning magical-reality documentary, 306 Hollywood, followed by a discussion with co-director, Elan Bogarin, and Zander Masser, author of the forthcoming photographic memoir, Unburying My Father.
Series producer, Caren Martineau, is a recent Rosendale transplant, social entrepreneur and founder of Bevival.com, a groundbreaking content platform. Martineau is on a mission to reframe the aging experience by “Creating fresh conversations for the vibrant silver tsunami of 65+ who are redefining oldness every day.”
According to the US Census Bureau, three generations will be sharing the aging experience by 2050. “What our society really needs,” says Martineau, “is a roadmap for living longer. Medical advances have extended the boundaries, but we’re still mortal. So it’s up to each individual to alter their relationship with impermanence. Avoiding chaos and indecision at the end of life is why we encourage death literacy, long before time of need.”
Martineau uses the hybrid word “edutainment” to describe Bevival’s programming content.“Our goal is to inspire and help others affect a positive change in their own lives, long before the end.” For Martineau, the most rewarding aspect of this series has been witnessing audiences transform in real time. “Watching films and/or engaging in discussions with creators and topic experts allows people to talk about the elephant in the room.”

Silent Film With Live Accompaniment by Marta Waterman
What the press has said:
“A shockingly visionary look at the fear of multiculturalism and the normalization of antisemitism” CSO
“Long-lost film that predicted rise of anti-Semitism and has an ominous message for today’s world.” Rick Noack, Washington Post
'A fable whose moral argues for tolerance”Jordan Hoffman, Slate
Jewish-Austrian writer Hugo Bettauer wanted to counter rising intolerance towards Jews in Vienna after WWI. One of his novels was adapted into a silent film which warned about the dangers of hatred.
Conceived as a dark satire, 'City Without Jews' takes place in the city of Utopia where The Christian Social Party see themselves 'ruled by the Jews'. They therefore pass a law forcing all Jews to emigrate by the end of the year and is enthusiastically received by the non-Jewish population. At first, the mandate is met with celebration, but when the citizens eventually come to terms with the loss of the Jewish population – and the resulting economic and cultural decline – the Utopian government must decide if they should invite the Jews back and to live together in tolerance.
Due to the implicit political critique,'City' was no longer screened in Continental Europe after 1933, and was not shown again until 2015 when a nitrate print was found in a flea market in Paris. Sadly, Bettauer was assassinated by a national socialist fanatic in Vienna in 1925, It remains, however, one of the most prophetic and provocative films of the 20th century, and is likely the first movie to take a stand against anti-Semitism.
Founded in August of 2010, The Rosendale Theatre Collective, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is dedicated to preserving the historic Rosendale Theatre and enhancing the cultural life and economic vitality of Rosendale and Ulster County through film, the performing arts and educational programming.
