Memories of a Farbrengen
A video art interpretation of a festive gathering of the renowned Chabad-Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneersohn, with his chassidic followers.
The supernal special effects and evocative narrative track attempt to render the vast excitement and spiritual energy that was generated during this typical gathering, called Farbrengen, that occurred over twenty five years ago.
In three parts:
Part One describes the relation of chassid to the Rebbe
and the efficacy of Blessing.
Part Two presents a short “timely” discourse by the Rebbe relating to the dangers of atomic war.
Part Three concludes with a finale of chassidic songs
with the Rebbe’s active participation.
