THE RESCUE - A Live Film-Concerto
by filmmakers Alvaro & Boris Castellanos
THE RESCUE - A Live Film-Concerto is the groundbreaking documentary film by Alvaro and Boris Castellanos which tells the story of José Arturo Castellanos, one of the few Latin American Righteous Among the Nations and the only Righteous from Central America. THE RESCUE is an innovative, emotionally engaging and personal way to tell the story of their grandfather and the survivors he helped, combining the presentation of the documentary film with a live concert performance of its musical soundtrack by a six-piece latin chamber orchestra led by Boris and Alvaro Castellanos on piano and bass.
THE RESCUE - A Live Film-Concerto has proven to be an effective and emotionally engaging vehicle for holocaust education and remembrance all over the world:
