When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit

Tickets on sale!

From the Academy Award–winning director of Nowhere in Africa (2001), Caroline Link, comes an extraordinary new film based on a semiautobiographical novel from children’s book author and illustrator Judith Kerr. In 1933 Berlin, precocious nine-year-old Anna Kempner knows something is not right when her father, a prominent Jewish journalist, vanishes. Fearing repercussions after his critique of Hitler, he’s fled to Zurich. Soon Anna, her mother, and older brother embark on a years-long journey to join him. Forced to leave behind her favorite stuffed animal, Anna learns that life will never be the same as she and her family bravely navigate unfamiliar lands and the challenges of being refugees.

Tickets: $11 (members), $16 (nonmembers)

“Director Caroline Link brings handsome period production values and a lyrical, restrained sensibility to a narrative that.…exerts its own unmistakable emotional pull.”
Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

This film is part of the Jewish Film Festival 2021 series.
