An evening of cultural exploration and cinematic brilliance awaits as the highly anticipated Philadelphia Premiere of “My People” takes center stage on Saturday, February 17, at 4 pm. Hosted at the Danielle Kousoulis Center at the Saint Thomas Greek Orthodox Church in Cherry Hill, NJ, this event promises to be a riveting experience for attendees.
“My People” delves into the poignant narrative of the Greek Jews during the Holocaust, navigating through the challenging times of Axis occupation, the resilient Greek resistance, and the profound role played by the Greek Orthodox Christian clergy. At its core, the film is a powerful hymn to love and courage, as experienced by a young woman on her quest to unveil the rich history of her Greek Jewish family.
