UKJF: Back to Berlin

Cinema

Director: Catherine Lurie | 2018 |UK | English, Hebrew, Hungarian, Romanian, Polish with English subtitles | Documentary | 76 min | Certificate 15

In the summer of 2015 nine Israeli and two Diaspora Jewish bikers embarked on an epic journey from Israel to Berlin, where the first ever Maccabiah games were to be held.

Spanning more than 3,800 miles and nine cities, their expedition was inspired by a group of bikers in the 1930s who set out from Palestine to all corners of Europe in search of athletes for the first Maccabi Games in British Mandate Palestine. Back to Berlin follows the bikers as they carry the Maccabiah torch and fly the Israeli flag through the former killing fields of Europe, a spectacularly moving and cathartic experience to the bikers and the viewers alike.
