Join the Tennessee Holocaust Commission on Tue, September 13th at 7:00pm, for the ONE-NIGHT-ONLY, Nashville Theatrical Premiere of THREE MINUTES – A LENGTHENING (Directed by Bianca Stigter), the new, award-winning documentary about the Holocaust, at the Belcourt Theatre.

Screening followed by a special, post-film discussion (via zoom) with Director Bianca Stigter and Author Glenn Kurtz.

Three minutes of home movie footage, mostly in color, shot by David Kurtz in 1938, are the only known moving images left of the Jewish inhabitants of Nasielsk, Poland, before the Holocaust. Those precious minutes are examined in intricate detail to unravel the human stories hidden in the celluloid.

Tracing the story of those three minutes begins with the journey of Glenn Kurtz to discover more about his grandfather’s film, ultimately leading to identifying people and places otherwise erased from history, and helping to connect a Holocaust Survivor with his lost childhood.

Please note: The film has no graphic content and no violence on screen.

Co-Produced by Steve McQueen (Director, '12 Years A Slave'). Narrated by Academy-Award nominated actress, Helena Bonham Carter.

World Premiere at the 2021 Venice Film Festival followed by Telluride, Toronto and 2022 Sundance Film Festival.

Based on an original 1938 home movie by David Kurtz, now archived at the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. 

Winner of the 2022 DocAviv Yad Vashem Award for an Outstanding Holocaust-related Documentary.

Winner of the 2022 Brussels International Film Festival European Young Jury Award and a Special Mention, the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival Jury Award for Best Doc, and Virgin Dublin International Film Festival Award for Best Doc.
