Holocaust doc premieres in New York

Distrib worries 'R' will limit playability

The Aug. 11 premiere of Yael Hersonski’s holocaust docu “A Film Unfinished” was an appropriately somber affair, with a talkback moderated by Broadway’s Tovah Feldshuh just after the MOMA screening.

The after-party at Brasserie Ruhlmann was somewhat less sober, as Suze Orman, Campbell Brown, Yoko Ono, Paul Schrader and Russell Simmons chatted over cocktails.

“We’ve had a disagreement with the MPAA over this film,” revealed David Fenkel, of distrib Oscilloscope. “They’ve decided to give it an ‘R’ rating,” which Fenkel contends will damage the film’s effectiveness as an educational tool.
