Anne Frank: Parallel Stories

Oscar Winning Helen Mirren tells the story of Anne Frank’s life through the pages of her world famous diary, a story that has made the tragedy of the Holocaust known to readers all over the world.


What would Anne’s life have been like had she survived Auschwitz and Bergen Belsen? What would have happened to the hopes and dreams she wrote about in her diaries? What could she have told us about persecution, about concentration camps? How would she have interpreted the reality of today,

the rekindling of antisemitism and new racism?


This emotive telling is entwined with the stories of 5 Holocaust survivors ( Arianna Szörenyi, Sarah Lichtsztejn Montard, Helga Weiss and sisters Andra and Tatiana Bucci) who shared Anne’s same fate of deportation, suffering and were denied their childhood and adolescence, but were fortunately able to go on and live the life that Anne was denied.


In addition to insight from historians and professors, Martina, one of the thousands of teenagers who feel close to Anne guides the audience through some of the key places in Anne’s short life, as well as those of the survivors. She wants to know about the story of the Jewish teenager who became a symbol

of the greatest tragedy to befall the 20th Century. An evocative documentary which brings Anne’s tragic, yet incredible, story to life and explores why this story has become such a historic journal that holds such great relevance today.

EOS: Friday Kahlo (TBC)

EOS: Friday Kahlo

“I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality” We might think we already know Frida Kahlo – the image of floral crowns, big brows and folk style clothing have made her a muse to generations – but what lies beneath the surface of this intensely passionate woman? This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the life of one of the most prevalent female icons. Kahlo was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life.


Guided by interview, commentary and the artist’s own words, Exhibition On Screen uncovers that this, however, was not a life defined by tragedy. Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, this personal and intimate film explores the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real Frida. Displaying a treasure trove of colour and a feast of vibrancy on screen, it offers privileged access to her works and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience and her unmatched lust for life, men, women, politics and her cultural heritage.
