Quiver Distribution and Fathom Events Announce the Exclusive Nationwide Cinema Premiere of IRENA’S VOW on April 15th and 16th

Quiver Distribution announced today a partnership with Fathom Events for an exclusive nationwide cinema premiere of IRENA’S VOW, the incredible true story of Irena Gut Opdyke, a Polish Catholic nurse who - through extraordinary courage - risked her life to help hide Jews persecuted by Nazi Germany during WWII. The film debuts on April 15th and April 16th in theaters across the country. Each screening will be accompanied by exclusive video footage featuring Jeannie Smith, Irena’s real-life daughter, Roman Haller, the baby that was conceived and born in captivity, Dan Gordon, the incredible screenwriter and storyteller, Sophie NΓ©lisse, the actress who portrays Irena, and the director herself - Louise Archambault.

 Directed by Louise Archambault, and starring Sophie NΓ©lisse ("Yellowjackets," 47 Meters Down: Uncaged), Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible 2, "Batwoman"), Andrezej Seweryn (Schindler’s List) and Maciek Nawrocki (Banksters), IRENA’S VOW is told through the eyes of strong-willed, 19-year-old Irena Gut Opdyke, and represents the triumphs of the human spirit in a time of devastating tragedy. Irena is promoted to housekeeper in the home of a highly respected Nazi officer when she finds out that the Jewish ghetto is about to be liquidated. Determined to help Jewish workers, she decides to shelter them in the safest place she can think of - the basement of the German Major’s house. Over the next two years, Irena used her wit, humor, and courage to hide her friends until the end of the German occupation, concealing them amid countless Nazi parties, a blackmail scheme, and even the birth of a child. Her story is one of the most inspiring of our time. The film was written by Dan Gordon (Wyatt Earp, Passenger 57, The Hurricane), who also wrote the Broadway play of the same name which starred four-time Tony nominee, Tovah Feldshuh.

 Recognition for Irena:

  • The Israeli Holocaust Commission honored Irena as a Righteous Among the Nations; a title given to non-Jews who risked their lives by saving Jews during the Holocaust.
  • Irena was presented with the Medal of Honor, Israel’s highest tribute, in a ceremony at Jerusalem’s Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial.                    
  • The Vatican has also given Irena a special commendation.
  • Irena's story is part of a permanent exhibit in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C.                                                            
  • In 2008 Irena was posthumously presented the Commanders Cross – the Polish Medal of Honor, given by the President and First Lady of Poland.
  • In 2009 Irena was posthumously presented with the Courage to Care award by the Anti-Defamation League in a special ceremony in Washington DC.
