Prins Carl Philip and Auto Images honour Harbour of Hope survivors
Auto Images is proud to launch a special gala screening of Harbour of Hope dedicated to the WWII concentration camp survivors portrayed in the film. They will return to the Malmö Harbour, where they started life again in Spring 1945. While in Malmö they will be honoured with aspecial screening of the film attended by Prins Carl Philip.
In Spring 1945 Red Cross liberated thousands of concentration camp survivors and rescued them to the Malmö Harbour, Sweden. Among the thousands of survivors brought to Malmö were Irene Krausz-Fainman, Ewa Kabacinska Jansson and Joe Rozenberg, the protagonists in the documentary Harbour of Hope. Together with the Red Cross voluntary Stig Kinnhagen and Malmö citizen Bo Fröberg they are telling the amazing story of how The City of Malmö mobilized to take care of the survivors and helped save thousands of lives.
On August 31, 2011 all five protagonists from Harbour of Hope will return to the very same city where life began again 66 years ago. Besides meeting each other they will also be greeted by Malmö citizens taking part in the 1945 help operation.
To pay tribute to the WWII survivor heroes portrayed in Harbour of Hope, Auto Images has the great honour of hosting a gala screening of the film for them. The screening will be hosted in collaboration with The City of Malmö. The survivors and those who helped them will be honoured during the screening with the presence of Prins Carl Philip. The special gala screening honouring the Harbour of Hope survivors will take place on August 31 at 7pm at the Biografen Spegeln, Stortorget 29, Malmö. The screening is a closed event by invitation only.

Auto Images has definitely no problem in using the expression ’a proud co-producer’. We have been a partner and co-producer in several succesful international documentary projects these last years.
In October 2013 our Finnish co-production The Punk Syndrome (Mouka Filmi, Helsinki) won Prix Europa for The Best European TV Documentary. Our Norwegian co-prod Bravehearts (Til Ungdommen, Sant og Usant) received a Special Commendation in Prix Europa’s category Best Intercultural TV Programme. Both doc’s has received international film festival awards.
During 2014 our next co-production with Mouka Filmi in Helsinki will be released. It’s Once I Dreamt of Life, a very personal film about suicide, directed by Jukka Kärkkäinen and Sini Liimatainen, produced by Sami Jahnukainen. Part of this project is also Alias Films in Berlin.
