Award-winner from recent film festival returns by popular demand to Mary D. Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (August 3, 2019) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona encore return of the award-winning new film “Eternal Winter” Aug. 9-14 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“Eternal Winter” debuted to sold out shows and rave audience reviews at the recent Sedona International Film Festival — where it won the Directors’ Choice Award for Feature Drama — and is returning to Sedona by popular demand.
“Eternal Winter” is the true story of an unlikely romance in a Soviet labor camp.
Christmas 1944. Soviet soldiers invade Hungary and drag every young ethnic German woman away from a small village and transport them to a Soviet labor camp where they are forced to work in the coal mines under inhuman conditions. This is where Irén meets fellow prisoner Rajmund, who teaches her how to survive. While she is determined to return home to her little daughter and family, history and fate have a different plan: Irén and Rajmund fall in love.
“Eternal Winter” is the very first feature film about the 700,000 Hungarian victims of the Soviet labor camps whose stories remained untold for over 70 years.
“Eternal Winter” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Aug. 9-14. Showtimes will be 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 9 and 10; and 7 p.m. on Monday and Wednesday, Aug. 12 and 14.
