Refugee Lullaby - In the seemingly peaceful and picturesque Austrian countryside resides Hans Breuer: shepherd by day, activist by night. Just hours outside of Breuer's modest rural cabin, the tranquility is disrupted as thousands of refugees cross his country's borders seeking asylum. He cannot sleep at night knowing there are refugees that need help, only a two hour drive from his home. Using a private Facebook group to connect, Breuer volunteers his time to help the refugees with everything from collecting food and water to driving them safely across the Hungarian border. He even sings them beautiful Yiddish lullabies from his childhood.
Refugee Lullaby film link will be available from June 19 – June 26 On Thursday, June 25 at 3:00 p.m. join a Zoom talk back with Zoom with Film Director Ronit Kertsner and Protagonist Hans Brauer (Zoom link for the Zoom talk back will be sent out 24 hours prior) .
