On My Way Out: The Secret Life Of Nani And Popi
1 x 60'
Roman (Popi) and Ruth (Nani) Blank are Holocaust survivors, who have been married for 65 years, but at age 95, Roman reveals a secret to his family that tests their seemingly invincible union -- Roman is gay and Ruth has been aware for the majority of their married lives. Told through the lens of their grandchildren, this award-winning documentary is filled with heart wrenchingly raw moments as captured in real time (cinema verite style) while at the same time, including lighthearted beats of humor. Following the film’s premiere at TIFF, The Canadian Globe and Mail awarded it 4 out of 4 stars, writing “at 40 minutes long, the documentary is beautifully, skillfully sparse. You want more of this family.” OMWO chronicles their unique and unconventional love story that brings to light universal themes that touch on what it means to be a human.
