World Premiere

Tiger Within

Directed by Rafal Zielinski

USA | 98 minutes | 2021

The unlikely friendship between Samuel, an elderly, lonely Holocaust survivor, and Casey, an angry 14-year-old runaway is the premise of this inspiring, redemptive story about the power of forgiveness and unconditional love to transform lives and overcome ignorance, fear, and hate. As the story unfolds, Samuel and Casey form a powerful bond, which gradually blossoms into a new family unit — him providing her the support and guidance that was lacking in her life, and her offering him the glimpse of the fatherhood that was tragically torn from him in Dachau. Multiple Emmy Award-winning actor Ed Asner stars in this absorbing drama written by Gina Wendkos (The Princess Diaries, Coyote Ugly) that sparks larger questions about family, love, and our divided world at large.

Accompanying the film premiere is a discussion with actor Ed Asner, director Rafal Zielinski, screenwriter Gina Wendkos (The Princess Diaries, Coyote Ugly), cinematographer Helge Gerull, composer Mark Tschanz, and moderator Danny Reed, Holocaust Memorial Miami Beach Education Coordinator.
