ABOUT ‘Are we sliding into genocide?’ Screening of ‘Cabaret’

While the Nazi Holocaust is no longer with us, the phrase “Never Again” cannot be said definitively because the structural and philosophical problems in our social and economic system that ultimately led to the Holocaust are still at play in the world around us. Modern-day Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and anti-migrant xenophobia are all part of the same tendency of conservative leaders to unload mass aggression at their policies against a racialised group.

ABOUT THE FILM

Cabaret is a 1972 cabaret musical film directed by Bob Fosse and starring Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Grey.
