SWING KIDS, 1993 (110 mins)
It’s 1939 and Nazi Germany has declared war on freedom, demanding conformity from its youth. But a group calling themselves ‘Swing Kids’ rebel with the ‘swing’ music from America and dare to stand up against the powerful forces around them. Each member of the group is forced to face some tough choices about right, wrong, and survival. Featuring Christian Bale and Barbara Hershey, SWING KIDS, is an inspirational and powerful story about finding the courage to fight for what you believe in.
All films are FREE and begin at 1 pm. This is a School of Humanities initiative. With a focus on youth, this year’s festival is an opportunity to meet like-minded people and discuss important issues facing the world today.
