There is a Mirror in My Heart: Reflections on a Righteous Grandfather, Sebastian Mendes

The exhibition documentary

Artist Sebastian Mendes offers a personal artistic response to the actions taken by his grandfather Aristides de Sousa Mendes, who, as Portuguese Consul General in Bordeaux, France in June 1940, engineered one of the greatest rescue acts of the Holocaust, saving an estimated 30,000 refugees. Through drawings, sculptures, and an in-gallery performance that metaphorically reenacts his grandfather's deeds, this exhibition gives visual form to this act of courage and heroism through art.
