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. SCREENING INFORMATION Saturday, August 25, 2018 7:15 pm Town Hall Theater CREDITS Director: Claus Räfle Writer: Claus Räfle, Alejandra López Producers: Frank Evers, Claus Räfle, Jörg Schulze FILM INFORMATION Genre: Narrative Feature Length: 110 min Location:…
