A Song for You

Tuesday January 27, 4:30 pm
Ida Noyes Hall, Max Palevsky Cinema

A Song for You tells the story of director Sharon Karp’s parents, George and Gisela Karp, escaping the Nazis with their infant daughter over the course of five harrowing years, crossing the Pyrenees on foot with the help of the French Resistance.

Director Sharon Karp and co-director Silvia Malagrino will be present at the screening and discussion.

Followed by a post-film dinner discussion led by Interfaith Dialogue (RSO), in Ida Noyes 034.

Note: The Karps’ second daughter, Erica, is a member of the University of Chicago community: she is the spouse of University Carillonneur Wylie Crawford. Wylie and Erica will be present at the discussion, and Erica appears in the film! A Song for You is a part of the Spiritual Life's winter film series.
