"Eva" Documentary World Premiere
6:30 to 9 p.m.
Clowes Memorial Hall, Butler Arts Center
General Admission: $40
WFYI, in collaboration with Ted Green Films and Mika Brown, is honored to announce the world premiere of “Eva,” the incredible story of Holocaust survivor Eva Mozes Kor. Pulled with her family from their Romanian farm, she endured the unconscionable experiments of Nazi doctor Josef Mengele, the “Angel of Death,” and sunk into decades of isolation and anger before single-handedly launching the biggest manhunt in history and ultimately starting a worldwide movement of healing through forgiveness.
Fighting off time and failing health, this 4 foot 9 inch, 83-year-old woman from Terre Haute travels the world to promote what her extraordinary life has taught: peace, humanity and healing.
Tickets for this world premiere event will go on sale Friday, Jan. 19 at 10 a.m.
Join Eva, filmmakers Ted Green and Mika Brown and other dignitaries on the blue carpet (blue is Eva’s favorite color) and be one of the first people in the country to see this much-anticipated film.
Narrated by Hollywood icon Ed Asner, “Eva” includes on-camera appearances from CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, former NBA great Ray Allen, TV and movie star Elliot Gould and many others who reveal touching accounts of Eva’s impact on their own lives. The premiere is a partnership with Butler University and Heartland Film and is expected to attract an international crowd, so don’t procrastinate. We anticipate tickets will sell out quickly!
We’re also partnering with Eva’s CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center for a second premiere event in Eva’s hometown of Terre Haute on April 14 at Tilson Auditorium at Indiana State University. Ticket information and other details will be announced sometime in January.
