Emanuel Rotstein's "The Invisible Line" documentary - Developed by author and director Emanuel Rotstein, "The Invisible Line" tells the story of "The Third Wave," a social movement created by former Palo Alto history teacher Ron Jones intended to teach students about the appeal of fascism, and how it gave rise to the Holocaust. While discussing the Nazi regime in his history class at Palo Alto's Cubberley High School in 1967, Jones was asked how the Holocaust could have happened. When students were skeptical that the German population could accept the actions of the Nazi regime during the Second World War, Jones launched "The Third Wave" to help teach his students a lesson. The five-day experiment developed a life of its own, becoming an uncontrollable force that swept the school. This production discusses the threats on basic social order through anti-democratic forces, revealing how the mechanisms of manipulation that once led to one of the greatest crimes against humanity have lost none of their effectiveness, and even continue to serve as tools for criminal individuals and groups. The broadcast is followed by a live audience Q&A with Jones, Rotstein, and Stephanie Weisman, founder and artistic director of The Marsh. click here
