„My Name is Sara”, directed by Steven Oritt, is a first epic period production service by Watchout Studio. 45 shooting days in three different seasons. Fully financed by American private equity investors, entirely shot and postproduced in Poland.

Based on the true-life story of a 13 year-old Polish Jew who lost her family to the holocaust in September of 1942. After a grueling escape to the Ukraine, Sara takes her Christian best friend’s identity and finds refuge in a small village, where she hides in plain sight, masquerading as an Orthodox Christian in the Ukrainian countryside.
