True-Life Third Reich Story ‘The Invisibles’ to Travel Worldwide (EXCLUSIVE)

“The Invisibles,” a docu-drama theatrical feature film based on a little known true-life story about four young Jewish people who survived the Nazi terror in Berlin, has been sold to multiple territories, including major markets like the U.S., Britain, China and Japan.

Munich-based sales company Beta Cinema has sold the movie, directed by Claus Raefle, to Greenwich Entertainment in the U.S., Signature in the U.K., DDDream in China, Lucky Red in Italy and New Select in Japan. It has also signed contracts for Brazil (Mares Filmes), Israel (Nachshon) and Portugal (Pris). Further deals are being negotiated.

The film, which was released in Germany by Tobis last week, intertwines dramatic reenactments with interviews with the survivors, describing their lives as teenagers and young adults “under the most dangerous circumstances and with an unknown future,” according to a statement. “The two [elements] blend together into an intense, emotionally moving film, with its authenticity never allowing the viewer to forget that everything featured actually happened like this 70 years ago.”

“The Invisibles” stars Max Mauff (“Bridge of Spies”), Alice Dwyer and Ruby O. Fee (“Ghosthunters — On Icy Trails”). The cinematographer is Joerg Widmer (“Pina,” “Tree of Life”). It was produced by Look! Filmproduktion and Cine Plus Filmproduktion, and co-produced by Gauger Film.
