Jordy Sank's (ATLANTA, DURBAN) multiple award-winning I AM HERE centres on the occasion of Ella Blumenthal's 98th birthday. Surrounded by family, Ella reflects on her astonishing WWII survival story. Transferred between several concentration camps, Ella saw her parents, close family and friends taken away and killed, yet somehow managed to survive and tell her story. Through many nail-biting encounters and a keen ability to be out of the firing line, Ella is liberated by Allied forces to then marry and move to South Africa. Viewers will see strong parallels with FLEE and the beautifully evocative hand-drawn animation woven throughout.
