Letter to Marc Chagall, based on the poem by Jerzy Ficowski, a film by Michael Nevins
Please follow the link to Vimeo below for an important 15-minute video documentary made by physician and filmmaker Michael Nevins. It’s about an ekphrastic holocaust poem by Jerzy Ficowski, inspired by Marc Chagall’s paintings. The poem led the artist to do a series of etchings based on the ekphrastic, which in turn inspired the film.
Thank you to poet Brian Kates for the suggestion and connection with Michael Nevins. Thank you to Michael Nevins for sharing this work with us. Thank you to Vera Aronow of Turnstone Productions for helping to make this possible.

This is such an important documentary. It gives me ideas for new ways to write about the war of aggression in Ukraine. So glad I watched it today, on the anniversary of Russia's full-scale invasion. And I will definitely return to watch it again, because history is repeating itself as we speak.
