Farewell, Herr Schwarz

Yael Reuveny, Israel, 2013

Perhaps it's true that things can change in a day. That the outcome of a decision made by a brother and sister in 1945 can affect the course of whole lives, for decades to come. Farewell, Herr Schwarz (2013) is an epic documentary about stories that can be inherited like the color of your eyes. A personal journey between Israel and Germany: 1 missed-meeting, 2 families, 3 generations.
