Chichinette: The Accidental Spy

Cast
Marthe Cohn

Crew
Directed by Nicola Alice Hens
Produced by Amos Geva


The untold story of Marthe Cohn, a feisty young woman who joined the French resistance during WWII. After keeping silent for almost 60 years, Marthe now shares the extraordinary story of how she managed to beat the odds and fight the Nazis as a spy. At the age of 98, she still tours the world, showing off her medals and promoting her message to people of all generations. Her harrowing journey is told with reverence, while her joie de vivre shines through, filling the film with hope for the future. – JCC Manhattan
