New Holocaust Documentary Premieres

“‘Three Minutes: A Lengthening’ is a great film about filmmaking and a quietly devastating memorial for lives long gone.”—Matt Zoller Seitz, Rogerebert.com

“Three Minutes: A Lengthening,” a new, award-winning documentary about the Holocaust that had its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival and was an Official Selection at the Telluride, Sundance and Toronto film festivals has opened at the Quad Cinema in Manhattan, and is opening this weekend at Kew Gardens Cinemas in Queens, Malverne Cinema on Long Island, and in New Jersey at The Clairidge (Montclair) and Montgomery Cinemas (Rocky Hill/Princeton).

Directed by Bianca Stigter and co-produced by Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen (“12 Years a Slave”), the film is narrated by Oscar-nominated actress Helena Bonham Carter (who is Jewish).

The 69-minute documentary is the winner of the 2022 inaugural Yad Vashem Award for an Outstanding Holocaust-Related Documentary, presented by Docaviv and Yad Vashem. The New York Times’ Beatrice Loayza named it a Critic’s Pick, saying, “‘Three Minutes’ is more than a documentary about the Holocaust—it is an investigative drama, a meditation on the ethics of moving images and a ghost story about people who might be forgotten should we take those images for granted.”

The original three-minutefootage was restored and archived in the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum.

“Three Minutes: A Lengthening” is the winner of the Brussels International Film Festival European Young Jury Award and a Special Mention, the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival Jury Award for Documentary Feature, and Virgin Media Dublin International Film Festival Award for Best Documentary.

Please note: The film has no graphic content and no violence on screen.
