Film: Wunderkinder Venue: Temple Israel Time: 7:00pm


Sponsored by: Create Your Jewish Legacy

From the producers of Europa Europa comes the moving story of three exceptional child prodigies - two Jewish, one German - whose innocent world is turned upside down. They are forced to use their musical skill, their undying friendship and an abundant amount of courage to try to survive a grown up world gone mad. Real-life musicians Elin Kolev and Mathilda Adamik give endearing performances in this rare and mesmerizing Holocaust drama told primarily from a child's point of view.

Wunderkinder's universal themes make the film timeless. Producer Alice Brauner says, "It plays out in World War Two, but it could just as easily take place against the background of any war or conflict."
