White Mirror – Second Look Film Screening & Panel Discussion

On International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the Mizel Museum, Denver Arts & Venues’ Public Art Program, and Lemon Sponge Cake Contemporary Ballet will screen two short films on the making of Denver’s first original, public and site-specific dance performance at Babi Yar Park. ‘Second Look’ by independent filmmaker Barbara Sandick, and ‘White Mirror’ by dance videographer David Andrews edited by Jenifer Sher.

The performance, titled “White Mirror,” was created by internationally renowned choreographer Robert Sher-Machherndl of Boulder’s Lemon Sponge Cake Ballet. The focus of the commission was to provide an educational and living memorial in dance for the thousands of Jews, Gypsies, Ukrainians and others that were brutally murdered from 1941 to 1943 at the Babi Yar ravine near Kiev, Ukraine during WWII. In conjunction with the screening, a portion of “White Mirror” will be performed live with musical accompaniment from celebrated pianist, George Lopez.

The evening will conclude with a panel discussion on the commissioning of “White Mirror,” the history of Babi Yar Park and the tragic events that took place at the Babi Yar ravine. The panelist include: Georgina Kolber of the Mizel Museum, Rudi Cerri, Denver Public Art Administrator, Robert Sher-Machherndl of Lemon Sponge Cake Ballet, Tina Bishop of Mundus Bishop and Dr. Julie Lieber from the University of Denver. Moderating the event is, Denis Berckefeldt, former Denver Commissioner on Cultural Affairs.
