No Place on Earth
Tuesday, November 9 | 6:30pm
In 1942, 38 men, women and children slide down a cold, muddy hole in the ground, seeking refuge from the war above in a pitch-black underground world where no human had gone before. After 511 days, the cave dwellers, ages 2 to 76, emerged at war’s end. Despite all odds, they had survived.
While in the Ukraine in the 1990s, American caver, Chris Nicola, stumbled upon this mysterious cave. Sixty-seven years later he led four of the survivors back to say thank you to the cave. Chris will zoom in following the film to share his story.
