ABOUT THE EVENT:

AWARD-WINNING FILM DEPICTING THE TRUE-LIFE STORY OF 13-YEAR-OLD, POLISH, SARA GORALNIK.

After escaping a Jewish Ghetto in Poland and losing her family at the outset of the Holocaust, Sara hides in plain sight. She passes as an Orthodox Christian in the countryside, where she is taken in by a farmer and his young wife. She soon discovers the dark secrets compounding the greatest secret she must strive to protect--her true identity.

RogerEbert.com:

So deft is the film's mastery of simple subjective filmmaking techniques that when Sara enters a small-town church, it's as if we're following a mouse into a barn filled with cats. This is also a refreshingly nonjudgmental film. But the film doesn't excuse anyone, either.

The Miamiartzine:

MY NAME IS SARA is a beautifully filmed movie and a magnificent story of resilience, bravery, and the will to survive.

Gary Goldstein - LA Times:

That we’re enveloped by her treacherous plight from start to finish is due in no small part to first-time actor Surowy’s gripping, deeply textured and sympathetic performance.
