"The Last Laugh" Film Screening

  • Congregation Kol Israel 603 Saint Johns Place Brooklyn, NY, 11238 United States (map)

THE LAST LAUGH dares ask: “Are we allowed to joke about the Holocaust?” This outrageously funny and thought-provoking film puts the question to legends including Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman, Gilbert Gottfried, and many others (including survivors), offering fresh insights into the Holocaust and what else—9/11, AIDS, racism—is or isn’t off-limits in a society that prizes freedom of speech. After screening at nearly 100 festivals (Tribeca, HotDocs, Traverse City, BFI London, Rome, IDFA), it was released theatrically in March 2017 and nationally broadcast on Holocaust Remembrance Day, 2017 on PBS’s prestigious Independent Lens series where it was runner-up for the Audience Award.
