The White Rose was a resistance movement in Nazi Germany that was led by five students and one professor at the University of Munich in 1942 and 1943. They published and widely distributed six leaflets that called upon their nation to rise against the government by urging them to consider the “dimensions of shame that will befall us and our children when one day the veil has fallen from eyes and the most horrible of crimes- crimes that infinitely outdistance every human measure- reach the light of day.” This documentary explores the legacy that was left behind by the members of the White Rose after they were caught and executed by the Gestapo. Production occurred largely in Munich during November 2013. Cinematography by Jeremy White. Original Score by Caleb Hudson.

Screenings: Harvard University, University of Southern California Shoah Foundation, Depaul University, The Anne Frank Center, Springfield College, University of Connecticut, Ramapo College, Jewish Federation of Greater Harrisburg, and others
