Once My Mother – Documentary Screening

23 August 2015

$10 for members / $15 general admission.

Join us for a screening of this powerful documentary by Australian filmaker Sophia Turkiewicz. Sophia and documentary producer Rod Freedman will host a Q&A after the screening.

When  Sophia  was seven years old, her Polish mother, Helen, abandoned her in an Adelaide orphanage. Sophia never forgot this maternal act of betrayal. Now in middle age, as Sophia examines her troubled relationship with Helen, she discovers the story behind Helen’s miraculous wartime escape from a Siberian gulag, her subsequent survival against the odds and the truth about an historic betrayal involving Stalin and the Allies.

With Helen sliding into dementia, Sophia must confront her own demons. Did she ever truly know her mother? Does she have it in her heart to forgive her? And is it too late?

“One of the most powerful movies I have ever seen. An exquisitely poignant journey of reconciliation” Bob Connolly
