Joe's Violin (#105H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVPG

In the Oscar-nominated Joe's Violin, a donated musical instrument forges an improbable friendship. 91-year-old Holocaust survivor Joe Feingold and 12-year-old Bronx school girl Brianna Perez show how the power of music can bring light in the darkest of times, and how a small act can have a significant impact.

The Changing Same (#201) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TV14-VL (Secondary audio: none)

Making Memories (#203) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVPG (Secondary audio: none)

Two films about history and memory, with a 21st-century twist. Wendy's Shabbat: Shabbat is typically observed at home with family, but here these seniors share in the celebration at a fast-food Wendy's. This film is a story of rediscovering the joys of community in older age, however unorthodox it may appear. 116 Cameras: As the Holocaust survivor community ages, the USC Shoah Foundation has embarked on an ambitious new project to transform survivors into 3D digital projections. This film follows Eva Schloss, a survivor of Auschwitz and stepsister of Anne Frank, through her story as an interactive hologram that will have conversations with generations to come.
