Finding Manny



 

LONG TREK HOME PRODUCTIONS AND NTD FILMS PRESENTS “FINDING MANNY” Selected in the BEST FOR FESTS Label

 
The chance discovery of an online article sends a Holocaust survivor on an unexpected trip to visit the orphanage where he was rescued to after the war.
 
Manny Drukier narrowly escaped the war by jumping from a “death train” at age 16, finding refuge at a unique home for orphans and displaced children. 71 years later, Manny—who lives in Toronto—is tracked down by a German researcher who has dedicated a decade of her life to locating the surviving children from the home. She invites Manny to return to the orphanage, which has since become a grade school, to share his story with the next generation. Manny must now revisit the places of his darkest memories, to reconcile the past and educate the future.

During this season of my life I must say this project is one of the things I have participated in, of which I am most proud.” Stephen Baldwin

"I loved it from the first few minutes of the film". Ivan Wiener Founder Albuquerque Film & Music Experience

"One of my best for fests" Bruno Chatelin co founder filmfestivals.com

Crossing fingers for Finding Manny selected to play at Crossing The Screen Festival November 26

Crossing The Screen

CROSSING THE SCREEN is an international film festival, meant to showcase innovative and independent forms of visual art from all over the world.
The Sussex-based film festival is devoted to discovering and celebrating unique voices and up-and-coming new cinema talents, who are not afraid to transcend traditional storytelling.

The inaugural edition was held at the Birley Centre in Eastbourne, East Sussex, in November 2016.
Its 2nd and 3rd editions took place in Eastbourne, in November, over 4 different venues, including the prestigious Towner Art Gallery.
The 4th Crossing the Screen Film Festival (September 2019) was held in the Leaf Hall Community Arts Center to highlight the strong bond with the artistic local community.

The 5th edition (26-29 November 2020) will be held for the first time online-only due to the current emergency of Covid-19.
