The Path tells the story of an adventurous escape across the Pyrenees and of an unexpected friendship between two children who, at first glance, could hardly be more different.

1940: Rolf has fled Berlin with his father Ludwig to escape the Nazis. All he was able to take with him from Germany was his lively terrier Adi and a signed book by Erich Kästner. Now father and son are stranded in the south of France. Their destination is New York, where Rolf's mother has been waiting for them for far too long. The only way to freedom is via a steep path in the Pyrenees.

At the border to Spain they meet their "smuggler", Nuria, a shepherd girl, hardly older than Rolf. But when Rolf's father is arrested on the path, Rolf and Nuria are on their own. For the city boy Rolf and the country girl Nuria, a dangerous journey into the unknown begins, once across the Pyrenees to Foix.

This screening is presented in partnership with Cinemagic, which returns for its Belfast festival in October 2023.

From 31 Mar - 16 Apr, Visions of Europe returns to celebrate the breadth of European cinema. With a handpicked selection of 24 films from a Macedonian witch tale to a race through Berlin, we take in the best of European film including previews, festival hits and classics returning to the big screen.
