This documentary recounts the adventure of a young Jewish mother who escaped the Nazis and joined the French Resistance. The film’s hauntingly poetic landscape conveys the intensity and mysterious exhilaration of her wartime years. Understatedly eloquent and witty, 92-year-old Andree “Poumy” Moreuil reflects on how the very act of resisting oppression transcends isolation and fear.
The full film is available to students at institutions with an Alexander Street license.
