Back to Berlin
Director:Catherine Lurie | UK 2018 | 83 minutes | Cert tbc
This contemplative documentary charts the journey of eleven Jewish bikers, who include Holocaust survivors and their descendants, from Tel-Aviv to Berlin, riding in commemoration of the 1931 team who travelled across Europe to find participants for the inaugural Maccabiah games (aka the Jewish Olympics). The 4,500km journey is an emotional confluence of tragic personal and political histories, highlighting along its poignant route the tenuous political mood of Europe today. A moving, thoughtful and timely reflection on anti-Semitism past and present.
“This film teases and eludes. It’s Continental drift. But few films so make us want to drift with them” Nigel Andrews, FT
