The Rescue — A Live Film-Concerto
March 14 , 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for the U.S. premiere of The Rescue—A Live Film-Concerto and discover the remarkable story of Colonel José Arturo Castellanos, as told by his grandchildren.
In 1942, Colonel Castellanos, the Salvadoran Consul General, led the movement to save thousands of European Jews during the Holocaust by creating and distributing more than 13,000 Salvadoran citizenship papers.
The film will be accompanied by a six-piece Latin chamber orchestra and followed by a conversation with the filmmakers, Alvaro and Boris Castellanos —grandsons of the Colonel.
$10 general; $5 Museum members, students, and Battery Park City residents
This program is made possible through a partnership with the Battery Park City Authority.
