Award-winning NANA recently acquired distribution and is now available on iTunes and DVD.
The film’s director, Serena Dykman took the annual Mira Nair Award for Rising Female Filmmaker at the 2017 Harlem International Film Festival for the film about her grandmother, an Auschwitz survivor who spent her life fighting intolerance.
Born in Poland, Maryla Michalowski-Dyamant survived Ravensbruck, Malchow and Auschwitz – where she was the forced translator for the “Angel of Death,” Dr. Josef Mengele. Maryla dedicated her life after the war to publicly speaking about her survival to younger generations.
Alice and Serena, daughter and granddaughter, explore how Maryla’s outspoken activism continues today, in a world where survivors are disappearing, and intolerance, racism and anti-Semitism are on the rise.
