Tunnel of Hope







Directed by: Dror H. Shwaratz


In 1943, 250 Jewish slave workers successfully escaped from a Nazi labor camp in Novogrudok, Belarus, via a tunnel they dug. The film follows the remaining escapees alive today, accompanied by their descendants, in an attempt to find the tunnel. The archaeological excavations dug up not only piles of dirt and some physical remnants, but also dredged up the memories, pain and hope of 3 generations which merge to become one story.
