Dir. Ferne Pearlstein | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2016 | 89 min.
This funny and thought-provoking documentary pairs clips from films with performances and interviews with top comedians and prominent Jewish leaders (including Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Joan Rivers, Louis C.K., Chris Rock, Abraham Foxman, and Shalom Auslander) to ask the ultimate taboo question: can the Holocaust be funny? History shows that even the victims of the Nazi concentration camps themselves used humor as a means of survival and resistance. So where is the line? The film explores that quandary and the implications for other controversial subjects.
