The documentary film “Eva Haller: A Work in Progress,” a film by the Laguna Beach-based nonprofit My Hero Project, has been nominated as a finalist in a La Jolla competition for best shorts.
“Eva Haller: A Work in Progress,” is a finalist for the humanitarian award in the 2016 Best Shorts Competition. The documentary by My Hero co-founder and director Jeanne Meyers tells a story about an 87-year-old Holocaust survivor who uses her talents and skills to nurture and support leaders of non-profit organizations around the world.
At age 12, Haller escaped from a Nazi concentration camp by convincing a young soldier that she was too young and beautiful to die. When her older brother was killed in the camp, she vowed to honor him by living her life with a sense of purpose. The film shows the reach of her efforts.
