Box for Life

Director: Uri Borreda.

Three officers walk into the barrack: "Which one of you can box?" Sally and Sam immediately raises their hands. And me, a 16-year-old boy without a clue about boxing, also raise my hand; to this day I’m not sure why. One of the officers: "Tomorrow you’ll be taken for tests; you'd better not being lying!" On the next morning, they took us to a different barrack. Stepping inside, we found ourselves in a hall full of perfect boxing practice gear: a boxing ring, sand bags and practice balls hanging from springs. A dozen men was practicing there; jumping rope, punching the bags and the balls. This seemingly normal scene would have appeared quite ordinary - except that these barracks were located in the Auschwitz Death Camp; the officers were S.S. members; and the three of us - Jews, having arrived from Belgium on last night’s transport. This is the story of Noah Klieger, who was a French Jewish teenager during WWII. He smuggled Jewish children from Belgium to Switzerland. He was captured by the Germans and was sent to the Auschwitz death camp. When he arrived at the camp, he claimed himself as a boxer which saved his life. Noah returns for the first time to the places that marked his life before immigrating to Israel as a crew member on board the famous boat "Exodus - 1947”. He was the last remnant of the boxing team of Auschwitz death camp, the oldest active journalist in the world, A crew member of the "Exodus - 1947”. He lay on the beach in Dunkirk when hundreds of thousands of British soldiers were evacuated to Britain. Noah Klieger is an example of courage, optimism and resilience. He is the Jewish "Forrest Gump".

Herinneren: Het verhaal van Maurits Kiek…Remembering: The Maurits Kiek Story

Director: Cheryl Halpern.

“Herinneren: Het verhaal van Maurits Kiek…Remembering: The Maurits Kiek Story” presents one man’s courage to return to Nazi-occupied Europe and serve as a covert MI-9 agent.

Pawn Sacrifice, Review: Check this out, Mate

In the only Urdu/Hindi film he ever made, Indian cinema’s Bengali language grandmaster Satyajit Ray used chess as a metaphor, setting it against the backdrop of the crumbling Navabi rule over Avadh (Lucknow), and its imminent take-over by the British East India company. It was simply called Shatranj Ke Khilari (The Chess Players). Another chess film, a 30-minute short made in 1988, was called Queen Sacrifice. The present film manages with just a pawn sacrifice!
