Description: Actor Michael O'Keefe directed this documentary, shot on video and transferred to 16mm, about a five-day interfaith retreat at Auschwitz. Organizer and Zen master Roshie Bernie Glassman brought together 150 people from different religions, including a few descendants of both camp survivors and Nazis, for a healing experience. With soundtrack songs by Patti Smith and Neil Young, color shots of guests at the retreat are intercut with black-and-white atrocity footage. O'Keefe reads a poem by a camp survivor. Shown at the 1997 Mill Valley and AFI/Los Angeles film festivals.~ Bhob Stewart, All Movie Guide
