Oro Macht Frei is a documentary that tells the story of Roman Jews experience during the Nazi occupation of Rome from 1943-1944. The documentary weaves together personal testimonies of people living in Rome at the time and historical research from scholars. Along with sharing testimonies of those living in Rome, the film also brings up the Vatican's controversial stance during the time - which did not speak out or stop the deportation of Roman Jews.

The executive producer of the film was Joel Markel, the son of a Hungarian Auschwitz survivor. The film was directed by Jeffrey X. Bonna, a graduate of Ohio University's E.W. School of Journalism.

The premiere of the film will be at the Two Rivers Theatre in Red Bank.
