Jesus And The Vanished Women" Closes 2014 Eko International Film Festival


The expository documentary film “Jesus and the Vanished Women” (Jesus und die verschwundenen Frauen) closed the 5th annual Eko International Film Festival Sunday night at the Silverbird Cinemas, Silverbird Galleria on Victoria Island, Lagos. It was one of the three special films from Makido Film of Vienna in German and dubbed in English for English audiences.

The other two makido films included “Diplomatic Liaisons – Mistresses of the Vienna Congress – Sex, Lies and Diplomacy” (Der Wiener Kongress und die Macht der Frauen) by Monika Czernin, Melissa Müller and The Righteous Among the Nations: Rescuers and Volunteers During National Socialism” (Die Gerechten unter den Völkern. Retter und Helfer im Nationalsozialismus), a very powerful documentary by Andrea Morgenthaler.

A timeless memorial tribute to “honor those who stood by the Jews in their darkest hour” during the Holocaust. It followed the 1963 Yad Vashem worldwide program to find and pay tribute to those who had rescued Jews, calling them the “Righteous Among the Nations”.

The exceptional biographies of Dorothea Neff, Franz Leitner, Jaroslawa Lewicki, Esther Grinberg-Boissevain, and the Helmrich couple demonstrate how it was possible even under the most adverse circumstances to show humanity and sympathy.
