May 23 at 7:00pm Movies of Lake Worth Synopsis: Complicit, explores the impact of the WWII Jewish refugee issue on the Roosevelt legacy through a mythical courtroom drama that puts Franklin D Roosevelt on trial for complicity in Crimes Against Humanity. Complicit includes never before seen footage of the US Special Envoy Hannah Rosenthal’s expose of America’s inadequate response to the Jewish refugee crisis. Highlights include the 2012 US State Department ceremony in which Deputy Secretary of State William Burns makes the first ever apology to a delegation of surviving passengers from the refugee ship, SS St Louis before a delegation of high ranking diplomats and foreign service officers. Complicit presents rare and candid interviews with these heroic refugees who were turned away by the United States in June 1939, and returned to the US to make extraordinary contributions to American society. Complicit integrates painful history with compelling drama. Download the COMPLICIT Movie Flyer
