Two Who Dared is an Official Selection at the New York International Film Festival, LA Edition (NIFF) September 18th-21st
Fourteen-year-old Artemis Joukowsky had no idea the heroic role his family played during World War II until he began to interview his grandparents, Martha and Waitstill Sharp, for a homework assignment on moral courage. Flash forward a few decades, and the documentary based on their humble recounting of the story, Two Who Dared: The Sharps' War, a film that was ten years in the making, is now being released through a Grassroots effort at churches, synagogues and theaters across the country and worldwide.

Two Who Dared is the previously untold story of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, a Unitarian minister and his wife, who left their young children in Wellesley, Massachusetts to help save imperiled refugees being persecuted in Europe, just days prior to the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia.
The Two Who Dared team is thrilled to announce that the film is in competition at the New York International Film Festival--the LA Edition. The film will be shown on Friday, September 20th at 6:00 pm at the Fairbanks Theatre at the Raleigh Studios.

With another film festival we are reminded how grateful and blessed we are to see the project come this far! We could not have gotten here without our partnerships with Brown University, Yad Vasham, the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, Anti-Defamation League, Simon Wiesenthal and our educational partner Facing History and Ourselves. Together we have developed a curriculum for teachers and students, which includes a 35 minute educational version of the film. To access the free curriculum visit the Facing History and Ourselves website at http://twowhodared.facinghistory.org/.
