A Brave Bunch. The Uprising Through Children’s Eyes – Poland’s entry for the European Union Film Festival 2018
When the Warsaw Uprising started in 1944, thousands of children lived in the city. A Brave Bunch is about those who survived. A hybrid documentary by Tomasz Stankiewicz, the film tells the story of the heroic and tragic 63-day struggle to liberate Warsaw from Nazi occupation during World War II from a child’s perspective.
A group of kids finds an authentic diary from the Warsaw Uprising. Looking for its owner they stumble into the Warsaw Uprising Museum. Thanks to the diary’s magical powers they meet their peers from 1944 who survived the complete destruction of Warsaw and the slaughter of its inhabitants.
