Ziva Postec, The Editor Behind the Film Shoah

Ziva Postec, The Editor Behind the Film Shoah

“It was the pinnacle of my career." - Ziva Postec on Shoah

Ziva Postec is one of the most talented filmmakers to come out of Israel. Born in 1940, at age 21 Postec moved to Paris where she became a professional editor and worked with leading directors, such as Alain Resnais and Orson Welles. The highlight of her career, however, was when she edited Claude Lanzmann’s monumental film Shoah between the years 1979-1985.

This documentary follows Postec’s life, while focusing on Shoah—including new behind-the-scenes details of its production—which she constructed out of 350 hours of film shot by Lanzmann.
