If Karski and the Lords of Humanity last Sunday has left you wanting more European cinematic gems, look no further than The Together Plan Film Festival’s second event of 2017: Le Voyage de Fanny. Adopting a much more uplifting, but equally sensitive, approach to the highly important and thought-provoking issues Karski raised, Le Voyage de Fanny tells the powerful story of a group of schoolchildren, and their dangerous journey across Europe to escape Nazi persecution.
A review for the London Film Festival praised Le Voyage de Fanny as “a well-crafted, heartbreaking film, showing that even children are capable of tremendous courage and resourcefulness in the face of dire circumstances,” adding that “the portrayal of childhood innocence serves as a contrast to the horrors of the Holocaust and a reminder that children were also forced to suffer terror, torture and murder – made more horrifying because of their guilelessness and because the young are supposed to be protected… Pierre Cottereau’s cinematography is superb in its echoing of tension, fear and claustrophobia through the use of tight camera angles and close-ups.”
The screening is the second event of The Together Plan International Film Festival. During 2017 we will be showing four films on the theme of ‘Heroes’. The films – made in Poland, France, Belarus and Germany – will address issues relevant to The Together Plan’s work, including Jewish and Belarusian history.
You can buy tickets for each screening for £10, or why not book a season ticket giving entry to all three remaining screenings for £22.50. There is a 20% concession discount available.
The Together Plan is organising the film festival in partnership with the Finchley Reform Synagogue Belarus Project (Registered Charity No. 1137577), who are supporting the Jewish community in Polotsk, Belarus.
