Based on a memoir by Fanny Ben-Ami, Fanny‚Äôs Journey is an incredible tale of survival and friendship in the face of the adversity of World War II. Fanny has been sent with her siblings to a foster home in Italy for safety. But when the threat of Nazi persecution expands, the quick-witted 11-year-old must lead a group of children across the Swiss border. Negotiating false names, alternately trustworthy and treacherous adults, and life-threatening situations, Fanny remains determined in her role. With awe-inspiring shots of the European countryside as a backdrop, the film delicately shows the hardship of history through the eyes of children, reminding us that everyday joys and tight bonds can help overcome the most difficult obstacles.
