ABOUT THE FILM
Haunted by the past but driven by an unquenchable passion for living, an aging group of
Holocaust survivors 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 (Gimme Shelter, Grey Gardens) 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.
“This is our revenge on Hitler. To live this long, this well, is a victory.”
- Fran Laufer, a Bergen-Belsen survivor
