"An Apartment in Berlin"

presented by the Los Angeles Jewish Film Festival

Q&A with director Alice Agneskirchner, moderated by Susan Freudenheim, Executive Editor of the Jewish Journal

Attracted by its cosmopolitan and international atmosphere, Berlin has become a magnet for young Israelis - and the three characters at the center of this film are no exception. But Berlin is also the place where the Nazis planned the systematic extermination of the Jews. Three generations after the Holocaust, Eyal, Yael and Yoav embark on a complex journey into the past by retracing the lives and refurnishing the original apartment of the Adlers, Galicia Jews who came to Berlin 100 years ago to fulfill their dream of a free and successful life. Along with the filmmaker they examine the connection to the tragic history of Germany while turning the apartment into a space for discussion and encounters with both the present as well as the past.
