Mousie tells the story of a mother forced to abandon her daughter. Seven-year-old Roma girl Helene is handed to tap dancer Katherina who works in a cabaret club in Berlin, in the hope that Katherina will arrange to send little Helene to safety in America.
Since we published our last article about Mousie, Sir Derek Jacobi has joined the team as Executive Producer. Sir Derek’s involvement was announced in ‘Variety’, where he called the film “unmissable”.
Double Oscar-winner Dame Emma Thompson also called the film “powerfully evocative” and “a fantastic piece of art”.
We are extremely grateful to David Bartlett and the rest of the Mousie team for making this film in support of our work. Now, more than ever before, we must share the stories of separated children so that children like Helene in Mousie – alone and terrified – are not forgotten.
