On November 7th at 7PM, LEAF is pleased to invite you to a special viewing of Defiant Requiem at the Fine Arts Theatre, generously presented by Bob and Carol Deutsch.
Defiant Requiem highlights the most dramatic example of intellectual and artistic courage in the concentration camp of Theresienstadt (Terezin) during World War II: the remarkable story of a brilliant young and passionate Czech opera-choral conductor. This is a film about how a rare form of courage, hope, and survival sparked an entirely unique method of fighting Nazi oppression, enabled the prisoners to maintain their dignity and humanity while battling the worst of mankind with the best of mankind.
Join LEAF in celebrating the amazing healing powers of music and the arts!!!
General Admission: $20 - Film at 7:00PM
Students: $10 - Film at 7:00PM
Tickets are now available at the Fine Arts Theatre Box Office and Online HERE. We hope to see you there!
