Winter Journey

The late Bruno Ganz shines in his very last role, that of Gunther Goldschmidt – now George Goldsmith - “a very boring man,” reluctantly being interviewed by his combative son about Gunther and his wife’s lives as Jewish musicians in Nazi Germany. Based on The Inextinguishable Symphony: A True Story of Music and Love in Nazi Germany by Goldsmith’s son, Martin, Winter Journey sets his parents’ love affair against the improbable story of the Gestapo-controlled Jewish Cultural Association, or Jüedischer Kulturbund, that, from 1933-1941, allowed German Jews full artistic expression among themselves, even while completely banning them from greater Germany’s cultural life.

Golden Voices

The immigrant experience, for better and worse, is front and center in Golden Voices, the story of Victor and Raya Frenkel, Soviet-Jewish emigres to Israel after the collapse of the USSR. For decades the pair had been the golden voices of Soviet film dubbing - that is, theirs were the Russian-speaking voices that came out of the mouths of Hollywood and European film stars whose movies had made their way into the USSR.  But in Israel, with no need for Russian-speaking dubbing artists, Victor and Raya must find other ways to use their talents and find their way in a new world.
