“My Dear Children” (Promotional still)

The quest to unravel a family mystery reveals a forgotten Jewish tragedy.

Just released—the first in-depth, scholarly documentary about the little-known Jewish massacres in Eastern Europe after World War I, told through the rare, first-hand account of survivor Feiga Shamis, a Jewish mother of 12 who was driven by events to put two of her children in an orphanage. “My Dear Children” is a window into this forgotten history and the daring rescue mission that saved those two children.

Followed by a conversation with LeeAnn Dance, the film’s writer, director and co-producer.

LeeAnn Dance is an award-winning television producer and groundbreaking investigative reporter. She began working with her co-producer/director Cliff Hackel in CNN’s investigative and documentary unit in Washington, D.C., where Dance developed a reputation for thoroughness, tenacity and creativity. Since leaving CNN, she has worked as a freelance video producer and journalist and taught broadcast journalism at George Mason University. “My Dear Children” is the first independent documentary for Dance and Hackel.
