AN UNKNOWN COUNTRY
2015
Genre: Documentary
Role: Producer

There have been so many stories about the Holocaust you may think there’s nothing new to tell, but odds are you’ve never heard this one. The moving tale of a group of several thousand European Jews escaping from Nazi Europe to find refuge in an unlikely destination forms the basis for a new documentary film. Currently garnering support from members of communities as diverse as the arts and human rights campaigners, the film is a poignant testament to the resilience of the human spirit. Actor, artist, and activist Beata Pozniak, who has long championed the urgent need for stories told by and about women, said the fact the story was virtually unknown and that it was being made by a woman, from a woman’s viewpoint, along with her respect and admiration for that woman, is what led her to become one of the producers on the project. Pozniak Daniels says, “I always look for stories that make you stop and think, and that can change your point of view. I found that in this story.” Below, Cultmachine's Maureen McCabe talks to the woman behind this powerful new film: Emmy Award winning producer and writer EVA ZELIG.
