NANA is the story of an Auschwitz survivor who spent her life fighting intolerance. Born in Poland, Maryla Michalowski-Dyamant survived Ravensbruck, Malchow and Auschwitz, where she was the forced translator for the 'Angel of Death,' Josef Mengele. Maryla dedicated her life after the war to publicly speaking about her survival to younger generations.

Directed by her 25 year-old granddaughter, NANA documents Serena's journey with her mother Alice as they retrace her grandmother's story. They explore how Maryla's outspoken activism continues today, in a world where survivors are disappearing, and intolerance, racism and antisemitism are on the rise.

"The world's most badass grandmother brings light into this dark tale, and makes NANA an absolutely gripping film." - THE TELEGRAM

"She passed away 15 years ago, but Maryla Michalowski-Dyamant feels very much alive in the documentary made by her granddaughter. NANA proves a valuable addition to the Holocaust documentary canon, exploring Maryla's important legacy in devoting much of her later years to educating people about the horrors she experienced and witnessed." - THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

"NANA's most stirring moment comes when Serena and her mother reveal when they went from merely knowing about the Holocaust to truly understanding it. With NANA, Serena aims to carry the torch for her grandmother and other survivors by making the horror of millions profoundly personal." - THE VILLAGE VOICE

"Profound, poignant, and an award-winner at fifteen film festivals, Nana is worthy of the highest recommendation to high school, university, and public library DVD collections." - MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW
