Across the Waters Film Screening

In a gripping story of survival and rescue, a Jewish jazz musician and his family, unsure of whom they can trust, make a frantic escape from Nazi-occupied Denmark. Aided by a church pastor and underground resistance, they set out on a harrowing journey with other refugees seeking passage to Sweden. Amidst lurking danger from the Gestapo and their collaborators, the family puts their fate in the hands of strangers whose allegiance and motives are not always clear. This film is based on true events.
