A 25 year-old woman–half German, half Austrian with roots in Romania–who discovers that her grandfather may have been a prison guard at a concentration camp. In the meantime, she begins a relationship with an Israeli artist finishing his degree in Berlin. To find out the truth, she embarks on an expedition into her family’s burdened past during World War II, setting her on a personal journey that takes her from Berlin to Romania via Vienna and Warsaw and into the abyss of modern European society. The film was an official selection at the Viennale.
Speaker: Honorary Consul of the Czech Republic Igor Lukes, who is also Professor of International Relations & History at Boston University specializing in Central European history, East European politics, and contemporary Russia.
