In this documentary from The MY HERO Project, Eva Haller shares her life lessons from a remarkable life, overcoming personal tragedy during the Holocaust to mentoring generations of activists.
At the 12th Annual MY HERO International Film Festival, we honored Eva Haller with the inaugural Women Transforming Media Award.
A friend to MY HERO, Eva Haller had the idea to establish an award to inspire and support filmmakers from elementary school to the professional level who create outstanding work featuring women changemakers or tackling women's issues. Hence The Eva Haller Women Transforming Media Award was established.
