Directed by France Štiglic | 1956

With John Kitzmiller, Evelyne Wohlfeiler, Tugo Štiglic

Set amid the rubble of war-torn Yugoslavia, this child’s-eye fable charts the friendship between two runaway orphans and a black American GI (Kitzmiller, winner of the Best Actor award at Cannes) who becomes their protector. This newly rediscovered and restored film is a revelation: a nuanced, deeply felt reflection on war’s tragic absurdities and a watershed depiction of black heroism on screen. New York premiere!
