Back to the Fatherland

Documentary Film, AT 2017, 75 min, OmdU

With their documentary, Gil Levanon and Kat Rohrer investigate what it might mean for Holocaust survivors living in Israel when their grandchildren move back to Germany or Austria; and the conflicting feelings this step evokes on all sides. Back to the Fatherland is filmic fathoming. A gathering of voices to work on the relationship with a present in which the past is inscribed.
