The Last Laugh

USA 2016, 89 min
Director: Ferne Pearlstein

What's funny about the Holocaust? Join Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Etgar Keret, Shalom Auslander and many other comedians and writers, as they share their thoughts on whether humour can be used when discussing the Holocaust. This entertaining and emotional documentary examines clips ranging from The Producers and Curb Your Enthusiasm, to rare footage of cabarets that took place inside the concentration camps themselves. While offering fresh insights, “The Last Laugh dispels the notion that there is nothing new to say on the subject [of the Holocaust …” (Richard Tank, Executive Director at the Simon Wiesenthal Center)

Screening followed by a Skype Q&A with filmmaker Ferne Pearlstein and producer Robert Edwards

Date: Sunday, October 30th

Screening Times: 1PM & 4PM

Location: Cineplex Cinemas Empress Walk, 5095 Yonge St. (North York Centre subway station)

Tickets: $16

Seating guaranteed until 15 minutes prior to screening.
