WHEN HITLER STOLE PINK RABBIT
ALS HITLER DAS ROSA KANINCHEN STAHL
2019, Beta Cinema, 119 min, Germany/Switzerland, Dir: Caroline Link

Veteran filmmaker and Oscar-winner Caroline Link (NOWHERE IN AFRICA, ALL ABOUT ME) returns with this imaginative adaptation of Judith Kerr’s bestselling children’s novel of the same name. Loosely based on Kerr’s own experiences and observations growing up during the rise of Nazi Germany, the film follows nine-year-old Ana Kemper (Riva Krymalowski) as she flees Germany in 1933 with her mother Dorothea (Carla Juri) and twelve-year old brother Max (Marinus Hohmann), following closely behind their endangered father Arthur (Oliver Masucci), a famed Jewish journalist. Giving up her entire adolescent existence, including her beloved stuffed pink rabbit, Ana embarks on a new life in several new places, discovering the resilient power of the human spirit that emerges when faced with the darkest sides of humanity. Winner of the Outstanding Children or Youth Film at the 2020 German Film Awards.
