'Above the Drowning Sea' Presented by LA Jewish Film Festival
Documentary/USA/2017/92 minutes
Directed by Rene Balcer and Nicola Zavaglia

Introduction by Natan Pakman | Associate Regional Director of the ADL

Won the Golden Dragon Award for Best Documentary at the Ferrara Film Festival, Nominated for Best Cinematography at the Ferrara Film Festival, Nominated for the Knight Award for Documentary Achievement at the Miami Film Festival, Nominated for Best Documentary at the Pasadena International Film Festival.

The dramatic escape of thousands of European Jews to Shanghai, who found safe harbor from the Nazi menace, is revealed in the affecting ABOVE THE DROWNING SEA. As Hitler advanced, Jewish families sought refuge in any country that would accept them. With every door closed, Ho Feng-Shan, the Chinese Consul in Vienna, courageously defied his own government and the Gestapo by issuing visas to the refugees. Arriving on Chinas eastern coast, the exiles faced new trials in a remote, unfamiliar land, caught up in its own civil war and chaos from foreign invasion.

This remarkable story of heroism and humanity comes to life through the voices of actors Julianna Margulies, Tony Goldwyn and Nick Mancuso, as well as accounts by the refugees and their Chinese neighbors who recall their harrowing experiences and the remarkable friendships forged across cultures.
