UUF Screens “Four Seasons Lodge”

A free screening of Four Seasons Lodge, a documentary about an aging group of Holocaust survivors, will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on Oct. 16 at 4:30 pm.

The survivors, haunted by the past but driven by an unquenchable passion for living, gathers each summer at an idyllic hideaway in the Catskills, where they savor tightly bonded friendships, find new love and celebrate their survival.

Directed by New York Times journalist Andrew Jacobs, with the legendary Albert Maysles contributing cinematography, Four Seasons Lodge is an inspiring and surprisingly funny documentary that captures what may be the final season for a remarkable tribe of survivors, who have found that dancing, laughter and late-night revelry may be the best revenge. What is heroic about these rowdy, cantankerous survivors is their appetite for the pleasures of the everyday.

The screening will be followed by a discussion of the film. The film is part of the monthly Movies That Matter series examining a wide range of issues.

The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Highway 42 in North Ephraim. For more information visit or call 920.854.7559.
