Kahn Faculty Fellow's Film in Local Festival

April 19

Holding Hands With Ilse

A documentary film, Holding Hands With Ilse, by Abraham Ravett, professor of film and photography at Hampshire College and a participant in the Kahn yearlong project "The Power of Disappearance" (2014-15) will receive its Pioneer Valley premiere when it is screened on Wednesday, April 19, at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, Isenberg School of Management as an entry in the school's annual Massachusetts Multicultural Film Festival.

Ravett's film, showing at 7:30 p.m., documents his search for the German teenage girl who served as his childhood nanny and became his friend in Walbrzch, Poland, between 1948 and 1950. With only her first name and a photograph, Ravett embarked on a search that led to their recent reunion in Ibbenburen, Germany.

The festival is free and open to the public.
