CAST: Max Mauff, Alice Dwyer, Ruby O. Fee DIRECTOR: Claus Rafle TUESDAY FILM SERIES
While Goebbels infamously declared Berlin "free of Jews" in 1943, 1,700 managed to survive in the Nazi capital. Claus Räfle's gripping docudrama traces the stories of four real-life survivors who learned to hide in plain sight. Moving between cinemas, cafés and safe houses, they dodged Nazi officials and a dense network of spies and informants. Yet their prudence was at odds with their youthful recklessness, prompting them to join the resistance, forge passports, or pose as Aryan war widows. Masterfully weaving these story threads together, The Invisibles is a testament to the resourcefulness, willpower and sheer chance needed to survive against incredible odds.
As a warm character study in a very cold place, Invisibles works on its own terms, offering up genuine glimpses of hope in the mere fact that it exists at all.Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter
'The Invisibles' is a movie filled with compassion and bravery. We are left admiring the wherewithal of four brave young people who defied the odds and lived, as well as the generosity of friends, family and strangers who helped them.Alexandra MacAaron, Women's Voices for Change
Shifting readily between fiction and non-fiction gives us the best of both worlds because the proof of what we've seen arrives directly after seeing it.Jared Mobarak, Jaredmobarak.com
