Kino Lorber is proud to announce the DVD release of Chichinette: The Accidental Spy, which tells the remarkable story of Marthe Cohn, who fought against the Nazis as a spy in the French Army during World War II.
Timed to Cohn’s recent 100th birthday this week (April 13), this critically acclaimed documentary will become available on DVD on April 14, 2020. The SRP for the DVD is $29.95. It is also available digitally on Kino Now.
Chichinette: The Accidental Spy is an inspiring documentary that tells the story of Marthe Cohn, a feisty young woman who joined the French Army during WWII after Hitler’s rise to power. After keeping silent for almost 60 years, Marthe now shares the extraordinary story of how she managed to beat the odds and fight the Nazis as a spy after her family fled to the South of France and a sister was sent to Auschwitz.
She used her German accent and blonde hair to pose as a German nurse and slipped behind enemy lines to gather essential information about Nazi movements for Allied commanders. She still tours the world for lectures and promotes her message to people of all generations. Her harrowing journey is told with reverence while her joie de vivre shines through, filling the film with hope for the future.
