Waiting for Anya (12A)
Adapted from the novel by Michael Morpurgo, Waiting for Anya follows the story of Jo Lalande, a thirteen-year-old shepherd living in the mountain village of Lescun. Though Europe may be ravaged by the horrors of World War II Jo’s world in the French Pyrenees has remained remarkably untouched. That is, until a ferocious encounter with a bear introduces Jo to the mysterious Benjamin, a Jewish refugee fleeing Nazi persecution, and a dangerous secret, Jewish children are being smuggled over the mountains to the safety of Spain.
Screenings will be followed by a recorded Q&A with Michael Morpurgo.
