Le voyage de Fanny
The year is 1943 and we follow 12-year-old Fanny and a group of children who are refugees from the Nazi occupation of France. The group travels from city to the countryside, sneaks onto trains, walks through forests and hides in barns. Despite their young age, they are forced to take adult decisions and take care of each other to survive. With the words “if you’re afraid, pretend like you’re not in front of the other kids” Fanny takes the role of leader and does everything she can to keep the group safe all the way to the Swiss border where security awaits. Fanny’s Journey is a real adventure, a sensational journey through our history and a very current story that convinces us that we are strong together. Maria Domellöf-Wik at Göteborgsposten is impressed, and writes: “The director has done an outstanding job with the personal directing. We get an interesting insight into what these children faced when fleeing the war, in all to young ages”.
