Based on a true story, “The Internee” follows the life of a young Jewish man who has to flee from Nazi-Germany as a teenager. The uncertain journey first leads him via Amsterdam to England, where the young protagonist arrives at the Hutchinson Internment Camp on the Isle of Man. On his journey, he makes various companions, who end up with him in the legendary “artists’ camp”. Curiosity, the thirst for knowledge and creativity make the young hero survive until he later returns to Germany with the British Army. Without forgetting the fate of his family and the horrors of the Holocaust, for him, this is foremost a journey to inner peace and forgiveness.
The work on the film project had already begun in 2016 by Greenlight Media, at that time still under the name “The Century Traveler”. The creative team behind the project wanted to place a new focus on the project in order to properly stage this truly incredible story. Now, in 2020, development work on the project is to re-start. Already, great interest in the project has been expressed by international artists and filmmakers.
