“Women’s Stories” Film Series

March 29th – 31st, 2024
A GIFF Virtual Film Series

Our female focused documentaries delve into the emerging identities of young women as well as into the wearisome sacrifices of the women who came before them. These independent films offer rare insight into the harried life of the jobless destitute who struggles to make ends meet as well as the working woman who struggles to break through the glass ceiling of a male dominated profession.

999 The Forgotten Girls

Wednesday, April 17th, 2024 from 6 to 8 p.m.
at Greenwich Country Day School, 401 Old Church Road, Greenwich, CT

A Q&A moderated by Mary Jane Rein, Executive Director of Strassler Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies, will be held after the film with Director Heather Dune Macadam. This event is generously underwritten by The Eve & Simon Colin Family Foundation.

In the spring of 1942, the Nazis ordered the Slovak government to send a slave labor force and received 999 teenage, Jewish girls. Their railway ticket was a one-way trip to Auschwitz. First-time Director/Producer and author of the international best-selling book, 999, Heather Dune Macadam spent eleven years interviewing survivors of the first transport all over the world. Digging through family and government archives, 999 unearths ground-breaking research that reveals this untold story entirely from a female perspective.
