Neo-Nazism and anti-Semitism are again threatening the civil rights and liberty of the Jews of Europe. It is so virulent in Hungary that a neo-fascist party, the third largest party in Parliament, openly is attacking Jews and other minorities.
In order to aid in the effort against growing anti-Semitism in Europe & around the world, the Quad Cinema, on West 13th Street in New York City, will present the re-released motion picture, Forced March. The film stars Oscar-nominated Chris Sarandon in the dual role of Miklos Radnoti, Hungary’s most famous poet, who was shot in November 1944 into a mass grave during a brutal forced march, and of the actor who must portray him for future generations. Quad Cinema will feature the film from November 1-7, to help in rallying people of good will to avoid repeating the horrors of history.
Leading up to Nov 1st, we will be re-editing and re-transferring the film, and covering the considerable expense of arranging its theatrical run and subsequent digital distribution. Please consider supporting us in this critical time of history by donating to the cost of re-releasing this movie and promoting its message. We also ask that you follow us on facebook and twitter in order that you might help us spread the message. Feel free to reach out to us if you would like to host your own viewing of the film at a local theater or your synagogue.
We look forward to you joining us for the release at the Quad Cinema, or in Digital or DVD distribution afterward.
Thank you so much for your support.
