Screening of I'M STILL HERE

On Friday, 9th September, 2011, Pradarsh screened the documentary-film I'm Still Here to help the students understand that it is the responsibility of citizens in any society to learn to identify danger signals, and to know when to react to prevent genocide and the steps required.

I'm Still Here brings to life the diaries of young people who witnessed first-hand the horrors of the Holocaust. Through an emotional montage of sund and image, the film salutes this group of brave, young writers who refused to quitely disappear.

The stories of the young Holocaust victims come to life as read by some of today's most talented young actors. The documentary skillfully weaves together personal photos, handwritten pages and drawings from the diaries, and archival films. It complements them with original footage shot in Vilnius, Lithuania, in the remnants of the old jewish ghetto. The powerful journey is intensified through unobstrusive, evocative music scored by Grammy Award nominee Moby. 

I'm Still Here, produced and directed by the supremely talented Oscar nominee Lauren Lazin, was nominated for two Emmy Awards. 

It's trailer is available here.
