Ziva Postec: The Editor Behind the Film Shoah
| Dutch English German
Ziva Postec was the editor of one of the most earth-shattering films in history: she spent six years editing over 350 hours of footage of Claude Lanzmann's Shoa.
Delving into her memories, the editing room virtuoso — a survivor in her own way — tells her story for the first time, going behind the scenes of the monumental undertaking to bring previously unseen footage to the screen.
Performing her task with a devotion bordering on obsession, Postec reveals herself as a humble heroine, one whose unwavering commitment and luminous intelligence contrast sharply with some of humanity’s darkest hours.
