"My Dear Children," a Documentary about Eastern Europe's Anti-Jewish Pogroms

Ms. Dance is an award-winning investigative and documentary television producer. Video production and broadcast journalism have been her passions for over 20 years, ever since receiving her Master's in Journalism from Columbia University. She has produced everything from groundbreaking news stories for CNN to promotional videos for non-profit organizations, and an internet radio show for individuals relaunching their careers. Her journalism background has given her the ability to distill a large amount of material and hone in on what is true and important. She pinpoints the real message that needs to be conveyed, creating a human story that moves and inspires audiences. Ms. Dance is currently co-directing and co-producing (with Cliff Hackel) My Dear Children, a first-ever documentary about the anti-Jewish pogroms of Eastern Europe as told in the firsthand account of a survivor. Feiga Shami's story offers a window into this forgotten history and the daring rescue mission that saved two of her children, changing the family forever. Ms. Dance's film gives voice to thousands of forgotten victims, recounting a story shared by Jews around the world.
