Petoskey Film Theater Series
451 East Mitchell Street
Petoskey, MI 49770
The Petoskey Film Series and the Petoskey District Library will be showing the documentary film "Violins of Hope" on Saturday, April 20, 7:30 pm at the Petoskey District Library, Carnegie Building (451 E. Mitchell St., next to the Arts Center). Donations are appreciated. A speaker from the Holocaust Memorial Center in Farmington Hills, MI will be speaking after the film.
Narrated by Adrien Brody ("The Pianist" and "The Grand Budapest Hotel"), "VIOLINS OF HOPE: STRINGS OF THE HOLOCAUST" follows the journey of Israeli violin maker Amnon Weinstein in his efforts to restore violins recovered from the Holocaust, and captures the lessons and highlights the music the instruments now bring to others. The documentary culminates in a concert by The Cleveland Orchestra featuring the violins of hope at the opening of Silver Hall in the Milton and Tamar Maltz Performing Arts Center, a former Jewish temple that was lovingly restored and given a new life—just like the violins.
