Anne Frank Parallel Stories is a powerful retelling of Anne Frank's life through the pages of her extraordinary diary guided by the Academy-Award winning actress Helen Mirren, and through the lives of five women who, as young girls, were also deported to concentration camps but survived the Holocaust.
As a dedication to what would have been her 90th anniversary --and in cooperation with the Anne Frank Foundation -- the documentary takes audiences into Anne's room within the secret annex of her family's hiding place before being deported, and through read excerpts of her diary intertwined with the experiences of the survivors who lived to tell their own parallel stories.
The documentary is released in cinemas across the UK and Ireland from January 27th, most cinemas are showing the film for one or two nights from this date.
You can also find out more about Anne Frank through the Anne Frank Trust UK.
