Please spread the word! If you’ve seen the film, here’s a great way to see it again and share it with others. If you’ve missed it, here’s your chance to see an important story previously untold on film. If you enjoy it, please let the station know you want to see it again and often.
An Unknown Country tells the story of European Jews who fled Nazi persecution and the rising Holocaust to find refuge in Ecuador. Their poignant experience is a lesson in survival and adaptation—a story now more timely than ever as forced emigration has become a major issue of our time. The film shows how the exiles remade their lives in what was for them an exotic, unfamiliar land, and it highlights their contributions to many aspects of life in their host country.
