(34 days left)
Exciting news:

Christa Fuller will introduce the March 29th premiere screening of the Academy Film Archive's restoration of the 16mm film that Samuel Fuller shot of the U.S. Army's liberation of the Falkenau concentration camp. He entitled it V—E +1 May 9, 1945. It was his first time with a camera.

We're thrilled to have her coming to Orphans 6. Long-time orphanistas, such as Marsha Orgeron and Lee Tsiantis, say Christa is a great conversationalist and a life force.
