Part of: Global Health Film Festival 2017

On-sale dates & times
Global Health Film Festival: Destination Unknown

Destination Unknown blends intimate testimony with immersive archive to bring the stories of twelve Holocaust survivors to the screen.

The film creates a seamless mosaic of first-hand accounts, rare archive from the time, and family Super 8 footage from after the war. 

The survivors share their memories, some for the first time, some for the last, bringing their experiences to a new generation. We see those who survived in hiding, those who fought as partisans, and those who endured camps such as Treblinka, Mauthausen and Auschwitz-Birkenau.

While a few managed to escape, most had to try to find a way to stay alive until the end of the war. Their stories do not end with liberation. We see how they had to survive the chaos that came afterwards, and their attempts to build new lives.

Please note: entrance to this event is available to Global Health Film Festival passholders only.
