Event details

See this moving, creative and contemporary film interpretation of the Polish children's story, as recalled 70 years on.

'The heroes of my film are Polish children who survived deportation to Siberia together with their families, and then, as a result of exile in wartime, went to [New Zealand]' says award-winning director Marek Lechowicz.

'Most of these children lost their loved ones and have not yet visited the homeland'.

'Overcoming Fate' was filmed in Auckland and Poland, and screened on Polish television.

Talk and guided tour included. Subtitles. PG.
