Vienna's Lost Daughters (57 mins)

Directed by Mirjam Unger (2007) 

The exceptional story of eight women who left their native Vienna during the war as part of the Kinder Transport. Without the courage and sacrifice of their parents, these young girls would have never made it to safety. These orphaned and displaced daughters went on to remake their lives in New York, USA, finding family, optimism and hope in another part of the world, whilst never forgetting their inheritance. (synopsis taken from Film Platform web site )

Five Days to Dance (1 hr, 19 mins)

Directed by Rafa Molés and Pepe Andreu (2014) 

Monday morning, two choreographers show up in a High School in San Sebastián, Spain. They have five days to get a classroom full of teenagers on stage and perform a dance theatre. The dance forces the teenagers to break their social roles right at the moment of their lives when such predetermined cultural positions are being solidified. As the saying goes, "If people can dance together, people can live together." (synopsis taken from Film Platform web site )
