4 FILMS AFTER SHOAH will be released for the first time on DVD in the UK – Claude Lanzmann's four films that he made as follow-ups to his landmark SHOAH, each of which explore in further depth specific aspects and events of the Nazis' extermination programme.
Featuring the films A VISITOR FROM THE LIVING / SOBIBÓR, OCTOBER 14, 1943, 4PM / THE KARSKI REPORT and THE LAST OF THE UNJUST (released theatrically in the UK & Eire on 9 January 2015), the four films will be released in a 2 x DVD set as part of the Masters of Cinema Series on 26 January 2015 to coincide to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
A VISITOR FROM THE LIVING  is based on an interview conducted by Lanzmann with Maurice Rossel during the filming of SHOAH. A member of the Berlin delegate for the International Committee of the Red Cross from 1942, Rossel was the only member of the organisation to have visited Auschwitz in 1943, and to have also paid a trip to the "model ghetto" of Theresienstadt in June 1944.
SOBIBÓR, OCTOBER 14, 1943, 4PM  recounts the prisoner uprising that took place in the Sobibór death camp in Poland. Only 50 prisoners ultimately evaded capture, while the rest were sent to their murders in the gas chamber.
THE KARSKI REPORT  is Lanzmann's brief film on Jan Karski, the Polish resistance figure who also featured in the final section of SHOAH, and which recounts Karski's powerful testimonial given to Franklin D. Roosevelt and Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter on what he witnessed during a trip to the Warsaw Ghetto and to the extermination camp Belzec.
THE LAST OF THE UNJUST , at 218 minutes in length, moves between 1975 and 2012, detailing Lanzmann's mid-'70s Rome interviews with Benjamin Murmelstein, the last President of the Jewish Council in the Theresienstadt ghetto, and the filmmaker's own return to the location 37 years later — providing an unprecedented insight into the genesis of the "Final Solution".
