Eva: A-7063: The Story of Eva Kor - Film Screening

Eva: A-7063: The Story of Eva Kor - Film Screening The Center for Rural Engagement, IU Cinema, Cicada Cinema, and the Brown County Playhouse presents a film screening of Eva: A-7063: The Story of Eva Kor.
 

A collection of short films made by local filmmakers will be screened at 6:30 p.m. followed by our feature film at 7 p.m. These shorts were produced for the Instant Gratification Movie Challenge.

Narrated by Hollywood icon Ed Asner, Eva: A-7063 tells the full, astonishing story of this historic figure for the first time, tracking her from Auschwitz to Israel to the United States - even into the U.S. Capitol for her jaw-dropping arrest - and ultimately to her courageous return to the Nazi death camp. As a 10-year-old “Mengele Twin,” Eva Kor suffered some of the worst of the Holocaust. At 50, she launched the biggest manhunt in history. Until her recent passing, Eva circled the globe to promote the lesson her journey has taught: Healing through forgiveness. "Eva is more than just a story," says actor Elliot Gould. "She's a revelation of what's possible in the human condition."
(2018, Directed by Ted Green, Not rated, 90 min.)
