Ziva Postec: The Woman Who Edited Shoah

Ziva Postec: The Woman Who Edited Shoah

In 1985, Claude Lanzmann debuted one of the most monumental cinematic works of all time, SHOAH, the nine hour documentary on the Holocaust told through interviews with both perpetrators as well as survivors. Ziva Postec, the editor of SHOAH, was an indispensable part of the project. In this fascinating documentary, Postec recalls this gargantuan, painful and necessary experience, as well as revealing the the film's profound impact on her personal life. Supplemented with previously unseen images from the making of SHOAH, ZIVA POSTEC is a moving portrait of an artist who for a long time has largely gone unnoticed, eclipsed by the towering presence of her male colleague.
