The Boy in the Woods

THE BOY IN THE WOODS

BASED ON THE POWERFUL MEMOIR OF HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR MAXWELL SMART

OPENING JUNE 21st!

The remarkable true-life survival story of a Jewish boy hiding and being hunted in the forests of Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe. A Canadian film, directed by Rebecca Snow. Based on the memoir of the same name by Maxwell Smart, the film dramatizes Smart's childhood experience of having to fend for himself in the forests of Poland during World War II.

WORDS FROM THE DIRECTOR REBECCA SNOW 

"There was a very unique and special sense of purpose amongst the crew at all stages of this production because of the very real subject matter. Certainly on location, everyone – from actors, to ADs, to PAs, made the point of telling me how important they felt this story was, and how moved they were to be a part of telling it. I suppose we all felt a sense of duty to amplify this history. And that was solidified when Maxwell himself (the Holocaust survivor) visited the set for two days. That’s a moment I don’t think any of us on the crew will ever forget."  (Full Interview HERE)
