About the Film
At age 98, director Arnon Goldfinger’s grandmother passed away, leaving him the task of clearing out the Tel Aviv flat that she and her husband shared since immigrating to Palestine from Nazi Germany in the 1930s. In this emotionally riveting documentary, Goldfinger follows the hints they left behind in a lifetime’s collection of documents and uncovers the mystery of his grandparents’ painful past. Winner of 15 film awards including the Tribeca Film Festival and The Israeli Academy for best documentary (“Ophir”).
