The Invisibles

https://vimeo.com/250223134 SYNOPSIS Four young Jews hide from the Nazis in plain sight in World War II Berlin and live to tell their stories many years later. The Invisibles boldly and beautifully interweaves the survivors’ actual accounts with highly accomplished dramatizations, an unusual hybrid approach that brings edge-of-the-seat suspense to their years spent underground. A film quite unlike other Holocaust related films and thoroughly engrossing.
