 Generations of family secrets are uncovered in this sweeping international story that begins with the Second World War and concludes with an emotional twenty-first century revelation. When award-winning Argentinean filmmaker Poli Martínez Kaplun decided to dig deep into her family history, she found a shocking discovery. Searching through family albums and 8mm home movies, she unraveled a twentieth-century mystery. What she found were long-forgotten images of her great grandfather, who she learned was a German-Jewish philosopher persecuted by the Nazis. To save his family from the concentration camps, he was forced to flee Berlin and moved to Egypt, then Switzerland, and finally Argentina, where they had to hide their Jewish identity in order to receive Church papers to enter the country (since after the Second World War Jews were not permitted entry as immigrants). Poignant questions of identity, resilience, compassion, and the plight of displaced persons are brought to life as Poli confronts her mother and aunts about the hidden Jewish identity they have concealed ever since. Eighty years later, Poli returns to Germany to their family house on Wannsee Street, a few feet from where the Final Solution was decreed for all Jews in Europe. View the trailer here! 

 

 

How does a virtual film festival work?

  • The film will have a 72 hour viewing period from February 25, 7pm - February 28, 7pm. You must watch the film during the viewing period. 
  • You will receive a link and password to view the film 24 hours before the screening period starts. Be sure to check your Spam folder. 
  • Upon purchasing a ticket, you will view a confirmation page with links to register the Zoom discussion. The discussion is free, but you must register with the link to take part in the post-film discussion. 
  • Internet speed is essential to home-viewing. If you haven't streamed movies at home before, we recommend running a speed test for your internet at https://www.speedtest.net to make sure you can easily stream the film. The minimum download speed is 10Mbps, but we recommend 25-35Mbps for optimal viewing. Additional information about streaming is available at our website, https://www.abqjewishfilmfest.com

 What is the differences between "Individual" and "Household" tickets? 

  • Individual Viewing: intended for individual use
  • Household Viewing: intended for 2+ people to share & watch together within one physical household
