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
