Edelweiss

Short Film (2017)

Producer

Edelweiss is inspired by a true story discovered within the pages of a WW2 soldier's journal.  We catch a glimpse of the compassion that lies within the hearts of those forced into a life of survival during devastating times, when a nurse saves the life of a valuable hostage, only to see him taken away for an inevitably brutal interrogation.

“Edelweiss quickly draws the view in with its intimacy and immediacy.  The cinematography, setting and especially the performances bring us to this sheer moment in time; beautifully, simply and poetically.  As with a true poem, we are given a glimpse of a moment in the lives of a handful of people enduring the trials of war, in which one look from a solider to another speaks volumes.  This is a beautifully big film in a little package.”
