Destination Moon
The real-life stories in these films open our eyes, ears, and hearts to history in a direct and personal way.
In one film, sisters tell of their time in a concentration camp, intercut with a modern-day field trip, where the impact of their lesson becomes clear to a new generation. In the last film, 12-year-old Andre is taken from his mother and his home in the remote Reunion Island off the coast of Africa and transferred by the colonial authorities to France. How will Andre adjust to his fate?
