Nelly Mousset-Vos met Nadine Hwang on Christmas Eve 1944 in the most horrifying of places - the Nazi concentration camp for women, Ravensbrück. Instantly enamoured, the pair were later separated; after the war, they reunited and spent the rest of their lives together in Venezuela, their relationship hidden in plain sight. On her farm in France, Nelly’s granddaughter Sylvie has a chest full of her grandmother’s letters, photos and Super 8 films that she hasn’t dared look at for 20 years. When she opens it, the rewriting of the family history begins. Through these treasures that had been gathering dust in the family’s attic, we see love blossoming in unspeakable circumstances and discover queer histories largely untouched by mainstream narratives. Powerful and intimately revolutionary, Nelly & Nadine is a tender and inspirational gem. 

The screening will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A w/ director Magnus Gertten
