Witnessed (1997) Directed by Allen Kaeja and Mark Adam https://youtu.be/DXa2gm7zK10 Choreography by Allen Kaeja Produced by Allen Kaeja, Trisha McKell and Mark Adam Cinematography by Mark Adam Original Music: Edgardo Moreno Musicians: Colleen Cook, Eve Egoyan, Stephen Green, Michele Irion Sound Editor: John Gzoski Performers: Sylvie Bouchard, Philip Drube, Karen Kaeja, Susan Lee, David Zurack Witnessed is a five-minute film inspired from the dance piece Courtyard choreographed by Allen Kaeja. Allen delves into the times his family lived through during the Holocaust of WWII, by exploring the relationships of five individuals after months of forced confinement inside the Ghetto walls. The story of Witnessed is one of displacement, unrelenting fear and community support in a time of crisis. In the ghetto, you could never become too attached to anyone for fear that they could disappear the next day. Tenderness happened in moments and the only constants were hunger and corpses. – Mania Kay, family friend and Holocaust survivor PART TWO: After watching the video, describe what you saw AND connect it to today.
