Movie propaganda

A time of great uncertainty and turmoil exists for the people of Ukraine in 1941, with the divide between social and religious groups at an all time high. During this dangerous period, Max and Helga Reich secretly arrange music lessons for their daughter Hanna to be conducted by two Jewish child prodigies Abrascha and Larissa, along with their teacher Irina. The Reich family’s benevolent arrangement is a risky one – providing hope and survival for the three talented musicians in a blustering climate of Nazi domination. Their story is one of great division, not only between Germans and Jews but also between those who have the talent to succeed and those who do not. Despite her own diligence in practice and the support of the best teacher in town, German Hanna cannot match the brilliance of Abrascha’s musicianship – leading to a deadly conflict of circumstance that will lead the Jewish children to literally play for their lives. In the tradition of Oscar® winning greats The Pianist, Schindler’s List and The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, Wunderkinder is a triumph of human resilience, compassionately exploring a dark era of history through the wide-eyed innocence of youth. “..A MOVING, ABSORBING DRAMA..” - Don Groves, SBS
