Aida's Secret

2016, 90 min, Documentary, Hebrew with English subtitles

Family secrets, lies, high drama and generations of contemporary history unspool in this international story that begins with World War II and concludes with an emotional 21st-century family reunion. Izak was born inside the Bergen-Belsen displaced persons camp in 1945 and sent for adoption in Israel. Secret details of his birth mother, an unknown brother in Canada and his father’s true identity slowly emerge in this extremely personal investigative film. Timely questions of identity, resilience, compassion and the plight of displaced persons are brought to life as Izak and Shep, the almost 70-year-old brothers, finally meet in Canada, then head to a nursing home in Quebec to introduce Shep to his elderly mother, Aida, for the first time.

Followed by a Q&A with the director and producer Alon Schwarz.

Beyond the Mountains and the Hills

2016, 90 min, Drama, Hebrew with English subtitles

Eran Kolirin, writer/director of the internationally successful The Band’s Visit, has created a poignant and political family drama.

When David is discharged from the army after a long service, he returns to his family who are more used to his absence than his presence. According to Kolirin, Beyond the Mountains and the Hills is a film about guilt, about living in the shadow of guilt.

It is a film about good people living in a bad reality, a reality which allows only the roles of the victim or the executioner.

Director/Writer: Eran Kolirin Cast: Alon Pdut, Mili Eshet, Shiree Nadav-Naor Producers: Eilon Ratzkovsky, Yochanan Kredo
