Finding Manny


LONG TREK HOME PRODUCTIONS AND NTD FILMS PRESENTS “FINDING MANNY” Selected in the BEST FOR FESTS Label

 
The chance discovery of an online article sends a Holocaust survivor on an unexpected trip to visit the orphanage where he was rescued to after the war.
 
Manny Drukier narrowly escaped the war by jumping from a “death train” at age 16, finding refuge at a unique home for orphans and displaced children. 71 years later, Manny—who lives in Toronto—is tracked down by a German researcher who has dedicated a decade of her life to locating the surviving children from the home. She invites Manny to return to the orphanage, which has since become a grade school, to share his story with the next generation. Manny must now revisit the places of his darkest memories, to reconcile the past and educate the future.
