Never Forget to Lie: Screening and a Conversation with Marzynski

November 4 at 7 p.m.

Marzynski's documentary was made for the PBS show Frontline, but it is also a personal journey; Marzynski returned to Warsaw, where as a child he was smuggled out of the ghetto to hide among Christians. 

Marzynski has been a documentary filmmaker since 1963. His films have been featured on FrontlineNova, and The American Experience.

He has taught at the Rhode Island School of Design and won two Emmy Awards, and was recognized as a Guggenheim fellow.

The event is free and open to the public.
