Local filmmaker and Take 2 Productions’ founder George Barnes recently directed an unprecedented global event in Paris, France for International Holocaust Remembrance Day in partnership with UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization). The show featured simultaneous remote Facebook LIVE integrations in Washington, DC, Los Angeles, CA, and both Warsaw and Birkenau, Poland with actual Holocaust survivors. The event focused on a screening of the award-winning documentary Who Will Write Our History (directed by Roberta Grossman, with Executive Producer Nancy Spielberg, distributed by Abramorama) in support of the #WeRemember initiative. Mr. Barnes is a leading Facebook LIVE content creator. “It was incredible to be a part of this global event, bringing millions of people together around the world in solidarity,” said George.
