3 Generations

3 Generations is a non-profit organization that documents stories of human rights abuses through film. We enable survivors of crimes against humanity to record their experiences as an act of healing, a call to action and to create historical evidence. We amplify and honor each witness's voice by creating broad audiences: film festivals, educational outreach, theatrical and community screenings, social media, partnerships, web-channels and more. Our goal is to influence the national dialogue and build momentum for social change.

German Concentration Camps Factual Survey film finally brought to US audiences

Last week, we had the honor of helping to bring Sidney Bernstein's extremely important film documenting the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime to US audiences. 3 Generations founder Jane Wells brought her father Sidney's film German Concentration Camps Factual Survey to New York for its first theatrical run in North America at Cinema Village, where it ran from January 6th-12th. The New York Times wrote a review ahead of the premiere, saying, "This restoration of 'German Concentration Camps Factual Survey' is an extraordinary act of cinematic reclamation and historiography."

Our organization has also been granted non-theatrical screening rights to the film in the United States, so we will be exploring educational partnerships to begin screening the film at universities and community organizations across the United States. 

German Concentration Camps Factual Survey consists of six reels of footage shot in 1944 and 1945 as Allied troops liberated Nazi-occupied Europe. Restored by the Imperial War Museum and distributed by 3 Generations in association with First Run Features, the film provides shocking, uncensored images of the atrocities committed by the Nazi regime during the Holocaust. To view more details about the film, please read our blog post through the link below.

Halt on DAPL Marks Progress

Jane at Standing Rock in December 2016
Jane at Standing Rock in December 2016

Good news is that our feature documentary film A Different American Dream will have its theatrical premiere in New York City on January 6th at Cinema Village. The film is being distributed theatrically and non-theatricallyby First Run Features and is available.

Our commitment to support Native Americans with their struggle for environmental justice is longstanding. As well as telling the story of the MHA Nation at Fort Berthold we have also spent time at The Standing Rock Sioux Nation. 3 Generations has been in close contact with different water protectors at Standing Rock. An invaluable ally, Myron Dewey, is a drone operator who has been documenting the protests, the response of police and the pipeline construction from the skies. He has made all of his footage available to his tribe and it has been widely shown on various media outlets. On December 3rd, 3 Generations founder and executive director, Jane Wells returned to Standing Rock to bring Myron additional supplies for his drone work. She was there the day the water protectors were supposed to be forcibly removed from the land. Instead On December 4, the Army Corps of Engineers delayed the construction of the pipeline and denied the easement through Lake Oahe. They have started drafting an environmental impact statement to look at possible alternative routes that carry less risk of water and wildlife contamination.


We are thrilled to hear what seems like positive news, however it is important to continue to be vigilant about the progress of work on the Dakota Access Pipeline and to continue to defend our environment and the rights of Native American tribes.
