Virtual Screening, The Crossing

The Crossing
In Commemoration of Holocaust Remembrance Day 

Virtual Screening: Friday, Jan. 28 – Sunday, Jan. 30


THE CROSSING tells the story of the adventurous 10-year-old Gerda and her brother Otto, whose parents are in the Norwegian resistance movement during the Second World War. One day, just before Christmas in 1942, Gerda and Otto's parents are arrested, leaving the siblings on their own. Following the arrest, they discover two Jewish children, Sarah and Daniel, hidden in a secret cupboard in their basement at home. It is now up to Gerda and Otto to finish what their parents started: To help Sarah and Daniel flee from the Nazis cross the border to neutral Sweden and reunite them with their parents. THE CROSSING is a film about the confidence, uncompromising loyalty and great courage you can find in even the youngest of children. This film deservedly won the Amanda Award for Best Children’s Film for 2020 at the Norwegian International Film Festival. It’s a great film for families to watch with children who have some knowledge of WWII.
