Free screening of true crime ‘The Driver is Red’ planned

German journalists Dagmar and Peter Schroeder will hold a discussion after a free screening of Randall Christopher’s ‘The Driver is Red’ animated short film on Jan. 8.

An exclusive, free screening of the documentary film “The Driver is Red” is set for Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 6:30 p.m. The award-winning, animated short by Randall Christopher depicts the Mossad raid that brought Adolf Eichmann to justice. It was shown at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and almost 100 other film festivals.

Dagmar and Peter Schroeder, collaborators on the award-winning documentary, “Paper Clips,” will speak after the private showing. They cofounded the Children’s Holocaust Memorial in Tennessee and have taught hundreds of thousands of children and others about combatting intolerance and bullying that lead to hate crimes and genocide.

The screening and discussion will be held at the Harvey and Deanna Evenchik Center for Jewish Philanthropy, 3718 E. River Road. RSVP online at www.jfsa.org/DriverisRed or call the Ruth and Irving Olson Center for Jewish Life in the Northwest at 505-4161.

Sponsors with the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona’s Olson Center include the Tucson International Jewish Film Festival, Tucson Jewish Community Center, Tucson Hebrew High and Tucson Hebrew Academy.
