A Love to Hide tells the moving and true story of a young jewish girl looking to escape Nazi-occupied France, who is sheltered by her childhood friend Jean and his lover Philippe. This powerful depiction of humanity at its worst and at its best, won 9 awards at major gay and lesbian film festivals. Emotionally-charged, the film is, as its heart, a beautiful love story in the face of extreme antisemitism, homophobia and brutality. French with English subtitles.
