ANNA KALJAS: The Untold Story

Premieres Thursday, Sept. 21, at 7 pm,  Princess Twin Cinemas, Waterloo

“Anna Kaljas: The Untold Story” explores the remarkable life of a passionate social justice advocate who came to Canada as a refugee from Estonia after World War II and ended up as a member of the Order of Canada. The film is a sweeping view of Anna’s life from childhood to contemporary times. It chronicles her early years in Estonia, her arduous escape from the Soviet occupation of her homeland and her new life in Canada. It is not only a retrospective of Anna Kaljas’ life and its impact on “her people”, family and friends, but it also re-frames her example as a beacon of hope in today’s housing crisis.

Directed by Dwight Storring, 75 min, in English.
