Hanna's Sleeping Dogs (Hannas schlafende Hunde)

Hanna's Sleeping Dogs

Twenty-two years after the end of the WWII, the inhabitants of a small Austrian town are still impacted by dangerous reminders of Nazi Germany. When 9-year-old Johanna and her family are evacuated due to the danger of unexploded munitions, shameful family secrets are also unearthed.

Based on a semi-autobiographical novel by Elisabeth Escher, Hanna’s Sleeping Dogs explores a young girl’s embrace of her heritage and her family’s past as she grapples with a newfound identity.
