Film Screening: The Way to Happiness

Henri Roanne Rosenblatt, former film critic and documentary filmmaker, Henri was put on a Kindertransport from Vienna to Brussels at the age of 6, several months after the Kristallnacht. After staying with a foster family, Henri lived in hiding from 1942-1944. This experience inspired his novel "Le cinema de Saul Birnbaul", which became the basis for the fil adaptation "Le Chemin du Bonheur" (The Way to Happiness), directed by Nicolas Steil.

In this enchantingly romantic tale, a Viennese Holocaust survivor becomes a charismatic restaurateur in Brussels, feeding his devoted diners Jewish delicacies while nourishing his outsized love of cinema so he can overcome his childhood wartime trauma.

Join Henri Rosenblatt (live on Zoom) and Dr. Steven Rosenblatt, Henri’s cousin, for a discussion along with the screening of the film.
