Éva Fahidi was 20 years old when she returned home alone to Hungary from Auschwitz Birkenau. At the age of 90, she’s asked to partner with dancer Emese Cuhorka to tell her story through dance. Eva’s exuberance for life and the horror of her past is expressed through their bodies in a dance that defines love and resilience.
Central Michigan University’s Dance Program Coordinator and Artistic Director of the University Theater Dance Company Heather Trommer-Beardslee will facilitate a post-film Q&A/discussion of how dance is used in the film to preserve history and evoke emotion.
