(Hannas Reise)

Hoping to advance her career, Hanna (Karoline Schuch) a beautiful but brusque young German, takes a volunteer job in Israel working with disabled youths and Holocaust survivors. There, she meets Itay (Doron Amit), a charming Israeli teacher who gives her a run for her money, even joking with her about the Holocaust—a topic she considers irrelevant to her life. Hanna’s priorities realign as she warms to Itay and learns more about her own family history.

“Rich in characterization and moral questions, and makes a clear visual contrast between the hot chaotic bustle of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem (beautifully filmed by Daniela Knapp) and the wintry symmetry of Berlin…. A coming-together of cultures is what a film festival is all about, and when you get it in one movie—and it opens your mind—you know your time in the cinema is well-spent.” –Montreal Gazette
