Award-winning filmmaker Marina Willer ("Cartas da mãe") creates an impressionistic visual essay as she traces her father’s family journey as one of only 12 Jewish families to survive the Nazi occupation of Prague during World War II. With cinematography by Academy Award nominee César Charlone ("City of God"), the film travels from war-torn Eastern Europe to South America and is told through the voice of Willer’s father Alfred (as narrated by Tim Piggot Smith, "Quantum of Solace"), who witnessed bureaucratic nightmares, suicides and more, but survived to build a post-war life as an architect in Brazil. As the world struggles with the current refugee crisis, "Red Trees" is a timely look at a family that is besieged by war, but finds peace across an ocean.

Screening followed by Q&A with Marina Willer
