Hawaiin envisions 'edible landscapes'

NEW YORK — Talia Abrams was struck by the irony that some of her neighbors on the Hawaiian island of Kauai could not afford to eat healthy food.

“It was crazy to hear this because we live on the ‘Garden Island’ of Hawaii,” said Abrams, 16.

70-year-old Hitchcock Holocaust documentary retrieved

70-year-old Hitchcock Holocaust documentary retrievedNEW YORK — “This was a woman,” the narrator explains, as the camera pans over a figure so emaciated and burnt that it’s barely recognizable as human. It’s one of the more arresting scenes in “German Concentration Camps Factual Survey,” a highly unusual Holocaust documentary shot and scripted 70 years ago, and crafted with the help of the legendary director Alfred Hitchcock. But it almost didn’t see the light of day. The recently completed film has begun making the rounds, and h...
