You Must Remember This

Eight videos and two films about memory, both historical and familial. The best is Hope Tucker's Bessie Cohen, Survivor of the 1911 Shirtwaist Fire (2000), an affecting video obituary of a woman who lived to 107 after surviving the notorious Manhattan factory fire as a teenager. Also intriguing is Marie-Francoise Theodore's video Rebel in the Soul (2002), in which Theodore plays two African-American women in 1915, one a Georgia lynching victim, the other a sculptor in Massachusetts. Also on the program: work by Elise H. Greven and Kate Sobol. 84 min.
