"My work is informed by an inquiry into very ancient times. Our earliest artistic artifacts convey vitally important ideas concerning survival; symbolic and yet enigmatic, they are strangely modern in appearance. It is my mission to develop some understanding of these issues which still haunt us today." -Robert Wright
(2017) Starring Jessica Chastain. The real-life story of one working wife and mother who became a hero to hundreds during World War II.

When their country is invaded by the Germans, Jan and Antonina are stunned – and forced to report to the Reich's newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck. To fight back on their own terms, Antonina and Jan covertly begin working with the Resistance – and put into action plans to save lives out of what has become the Warsaw Ghetto, with Antonina putting herself and even her children at great risk.
