Congregation Kol Halev presents “Once In A Lifetime” as part of the Austin Jewish Film Festival

A powerful and inspirational drama based on a true story, “Once in a Lifetime” follows a group of troubled inner-city
French high school kids as they move from apathy to engagement. History teacher Anne Guegon is strong-willed and
compassionate, determined to raise her students as high as they can go, but the task is monumental. She finds it difficult
to rouse her students from their passivity until she enters them in a prestigious national competition on the theme
of what it meant to be a teen in a Nazi concentration camp. The students resist until they host a Holocaust survivor who
engages them dramatically. The once-rebellious teens ultimately learn to believe in themselves and their abilities.
“A wonderful narrative that demonstrates the enduring impact of the Holocaust in transforming future generations.”
