A new documentary on Sir Frank Lowy will be premiered at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in New York next week.

Frank Lowy

The film was directed by Academy Award-nominated and Emmy winner Steven Cantor.

Festival program notes describe the film:

Frank Lowy, founder of shopping mall giant Westfield, started with one Australian store and built it into a global, billion dollar enterprise. Now in his late 80s and facing the prospect of a merger that will lead to his retirement, he reflects on his past and events that have molded him into the fighter, philanthropist and survivor he is today. Born Jewish in what was then Czechoslovakia in 1930, Lowy survived the Holocaust, moved to Australia and built a close family and business empire.

Revisiting the sites of his childhood and young adulthood, What Will Become Of Ustakes us on an intimate journey of a man who seems to have it all but is keenly aware of the past and challenges of the future for himself and his family. Lowy’s extraordinary life—from the ghettos of Budapest to living as a refugee in Palestine—is the story of his achievements despite all challenges and a testament to the value and impact of a single life in the lives of others.

A critic who has reviewed the film describes it as being sombre but well worth watching.
