From the producers of EUROPA EUROPA comes the powerful story of three children united by their passion for music. Living in the small Ukrainian town of Poltava in 1941, the young musical prodigies – two Jewish, one German – have their friendship tested when the Nazis invade. A moving tale that speaks to the power of art in the face of tragedy, WUNDERKINDER features impressive performances by real-life musicians Elin Kolev and Mathilda Adamik. Recommended for ages 13+.
