"The Last Laugh" - Film screening and "talkback"

Posted

Moses Brown School, in partnership with Temple Torat Yisrael of East Greenwich, hosts a community screening of THE LAST LAUGH, a bold documentary that dares to ask: “Are we allowed to joke about the Holocaust?” This outrageously funny and thought-provoking film puts the question to legends and critical thinkers including Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Gilbert Gottfried, and many others (including survivors), offering fresh insights into the Holocaust and what else—9/11, AIDS, racism—is or isn’t off-limits in a society that prizes freedom of speech. The screening will be followed by a video Q&A with the director and award-winning cinematographer, Ferne Pearlstein.
