Beauty, creativity, genius: the Renaissance Florence of Lorenzo de' Medici was a powerhouse of art and culture. Among countless shops and government buildings, there was endless beauty coexisting with the dark side of the city, made up of power struggles, plots, intrigues and brutal violence.
Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Dear Ambassador at Dendy Canberra
Dear Ambassador tells the extraordinary story of Luiz Martins de Souza Dantas, who served as Brazilian Ambassador to Paris during WWII.
A largely unsung hero, he defied his own government’s orders by granting hundreds of unauthorised visas to Jews and others facing imminent capture and death. Deftly weaving re-enactments, interviews with survivors, and archival footage, Dear Ambassador commemorates Brazil’s counterpart to Oskar Schindler and Raoul Wallenberg, who was posthumously awarded the title Righteous Among the Nations at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem.
