Join us for a screening of

Nicky's Family

 

Best Documentary of the 35th Montreal World Film Festival

 

Followed by Q&A with Director Matej Mináč

 

NICKY'S FAMILY is an emotional retelling of the remarkable story of Sir Nicholas Winton, a young English businessman who organized the rescue of 669 Czech children just before the outbreak of World War II. Winton, who died in 2015 at the age of 106, did not speak about these events with anyone for more than half a century. His exploits would have probably been forgotten if his wife, fifty years later, hadn't found a suitcase in the attic, full of documents and transport plans. Today the story of this rescue is known all over the world. Dozens of Winton's "children" have been found and to this day his family has grown to almost 6,000 people, many of whom have gone on to achieve great things themselves.

The screening will be followed by Q&A with director Matej Mináč.

This event is free and open to the public, but RSVP is required:
