This extraordinary documentary follows opera singer Nelly Mousset-Vos and writer Nadine Hwang, who met and fell in love while imprisoned in Ravensbrück, a German concentration camp, in 1944. Despite being separated in the last months of the war, they later reunite and spend the rest of their lives together. All that is left of the unlikely love story — kept secret for decades — are photos, letters, and Super-8 film reels kept in boxes. Stumbling upon these years later, Nelly’s granddaughter Sylvie begins piecing together Nelly and Nadine’s legacy and uncovering the records of their remarkable love.
Winner of the Teddy Jury Prize at the Berlinale Film Festival, NELLY & NADINE takes audiences on a journey through these personal archives to excavate the nearly forgotten history of one of the greatest love stories never told.

POWERFUL AND URGENTLY NECESSARY DOCUMENTARY
December 19, 2022
WE REALLY NEEDED TO SEE A FILM ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN NELLY MOUSSET-VOS AND NADINE HWANG AT THIS TIME BECAUSE OF THE INCREASING DANGER FROM THE NEO-NAZI AND WHITE SUPREMACIST HOLOCAUST DENIERS, AND ALSO FROM THE PROBLEMS CAUSED BY THE ANTI-LGBTQ LEGISLATION. I PARTICULARLY LIKED HEARING THE STORY FROM THE WOMAN NAMED RACHEL WHO SAID THAT HER MOTHER AND HER WERE BOTH SAVED BY NADINE. I ONLY WISH THAT THIS FILM COULD HAVE BEEN MADE BEFORE THE DEATH OF NELLY'S DAUGHTER, CLAUDE, SO THAT WE COULD HAVE FOUND OUT WHY SHE WAS UNWILLING TO ACCEPT HER RELATIONSHIP WITH NADINE.
