PAPER CLIPS (article first published : 2006-08-1)

The hit documentary feature, Paper Clips running at Cinema Nouveau at Gateway was acquired for distribution in South Africa by Videovision Entertainment. It has captured the imagination of audiences through its documentation of the unusual approach adopted by a United States high school to quantify the magnitude of the Holocaust.

Whitwell Middle School in rural Tennessee is the setting for this documentary about an extraordinary experiment in Holocaust education. Struggling to grasp the concept of six-million Holocaust victims, the students decide to collect six-million paper clips to understand the extent of this crime against humanity. Paper Clips details how the students met Holocaust survivors from around the world and how the experience transformed them and their community.
