Misha Defonseca's holocaust survival memoir took the world by storm, until her publisher-turned-detective revealed an audacious deception hiding a much darker truth.
In the early 1990s, Misha Defonseca broke a 50-year silence. She opened up about her unbelievable past, evading the Nazis by taking to the forests, befriending a pack of wolves, and walking across the European wilderness to safety. Her memoir took the world by storm, but a fallout with her publisher – who turns detective – reveals an audacious deception, and beyond that a much darker truth.
A rabbit warren of twists and turns, Misha and the Wolves is a gripping tale of secrets and revelations, the lies we tell and the stories we choose to believe.
The screening on Fri 3rd Sep will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
