NO PLACE ON EARTH
Dir. Janet Tobias (81min, USA/UK/Germany, 2012)
Doc Subject Chris Nicola and Producer Susan Barnett expected
Out of options, a group of families descend into underground caves in southern Ukraine to escape Nazi persecution in October of 1942. Five hundred days later, the families emerge from the dark, having endured unimaginable hardships and proving the indomitability of the human spirit.
This survival story of heart-stopping risk and youthful ingenuity may have been forever buried were it not for one industrial spelunker who happened across remnants of the refuge during a caving expedition.
