UKJF: Back to the Fatherland

Cinema

Directed by Kat Rohrer and Gil Levanon| 2017 | Austria | Hebrew, German, English with English subtitles | 1hr 59 | Certificate 12A

Kat’s grandfather was, in her words, a “super Nazi”, whereas Gil’s is a Holocaust survivor. The two met as film students in New York and became close friends. Back to the Fatherland is the fruit of their friendship – a brave and moving documentary about new Israeli immigration to Germany and Austria. Featuring several Israeli Holocaust survivors and their grandchildren, who have decided to settle in the countries that their families were forced to flee, the film explores the dramatic shift in attitudes since the end of war, and asks whether a true reconciliation will ever be possible.
