Datebook: Filming World War II, sensory art from South America, summer happenings at the Broad and the Getty


By Carolina Miranda, Los Angeles Times

The life-changing work of a crew of American filmmakers. Early light and space art by key South American artists. And a soundtrack for the apocalypse. Here are five exhibitions and events to check out in the coming week:

John Ford, Samuel Fuller, George Stevens, “Filming the Camps: From Hollywood to Nuremberg,” at the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust. Organized by the Mémorial de la Shoah in Paris, this exhibition looks at the vital work done by three key American filmmakers during World War II. Ford, Fuller and Stevens, in the employ of the U.S. Armed Forces and the Secret Services, filmed key aspects of the war — including the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. The show includes film footage, personal letters, important ephemera and other rare objects and reflects on the way in which playing witness to Nazi atrocities shaped the worldview of these important directors. There could not be a more timely moment for this exhibition. Opens Sunday and runs through April 30. 100 S. Grove Dr., Fairfax District, Los Angeles,
