We are thrilled to announce that A Pocketful of Miracles: A Tale of Two Siblings will be making its European premiere at the Berlin Jewish Film Festival this June. 

Berlin born director Aviva Kempner chronicles her mother Hanka and uncle Dudek Ciesla’s lives before and during World War II. From their idyllic Jewish upbringing in Poland through their survival of the Holocaust to their tearful reunion after the war, this moving documentary follows the incredible story of these loving siblings and the incredible lives they built in America as abstract expressionist painter Helen Ciesla Covensky and businessman and philanthropist David Chase.
