In a career that includes nearly 30 works, Lynne Sachs is best known for her experimental documentary and essay films. In this special screening, Sachs introduces two recent films that explore memory within a larger historical context.

The Last Happy Day is Sachs’s portrait of her distant cousin, Sandor Lenard, a Hungarian doctor who fled from the Nazis to Rome, where he was hired by the US Army to reconstruct the bones of dead American soldiers. (38 mins., video)

States of Unbelonging is Sachs’s meditation on violence in the Middle East through the story of Revital Ohayon, an Israeli filmmaker and mother killed near the West Bank. (63 mins., video)
