  • A forerunner to INTO THE ARMS OF STRANGERS, Melissa Hacker's powerful MY KNEES WERE TREMBLING remains the first feature-length documentary to reveal the human drama behind the Kindertransport movement of WWII, a British refugee policy that saved over 10,000 Jewish children from Eastern Europe by placing them in foster homes in England. Narrated by screen legend Joanne Woodward, the heartwrenching stories are detailed through archival footage and firsthand accounts from the survivors themselves--including Hacker's own mother Ruth Morley, a costume designer for films such as ANNIE HALL and TOOTSIE. As the former emigres share their memories, examine the guilt of survival, and discuss the fear of abandonment that haunts them to this day, Hacker's unforgettable film mounts to a poignant intimacy that will leave no viewer untouched. Nominated for a Grand Jury Prize at the 1996 Sundance Film Festival.
