Boston Jewish Film 360 Summer Cinematheque Presents: Back to the Fatherland
When filmmakers Gil and Kat became friends while at college in New York City, it was clear that their families' histories were strikingly different - Gil comes from Israel, Kat from Austria. Gil’s grandfather is a Holocaust survivor, Kat’s was a Nazi officer. With the increase of young Israelis moving to Germany and Austria, Gil and Kat decide to explore this trend through their distinct, but related, perspectives. What is the appeal of these countries to young Israelis? How do survivors feel when their grandchildren return to the countries they fled? And could their return to the sites of their families’ pain create reconciliation between generations? Back to the Fatherland follows three families as they explore this complicated transition and, ultimately, shines light on the filmmaker’s own complex identities.
