Winter Journey

Tuesday, May 4, 7:30 pm - Saturday, May 8, 11:59 pm

”Winter Journey” is based on American radio host Martin Goldsmith’s book about his Jewish parents, who fled Nazi Germany. Both were talented musicians, but after the Nuremberg Laws were enacted in 1935 they were only able to perform as members of the Jewish Cultural Federation, a bizarre propaganda organization fully controlled by the Reich Chamber of Culture. This film brings to life the reality of their beautiful and painful love story, using remarkable and ingenuously edited archive material. It also includes reenactments of the conversations Goldsmith had with his father as preperation for the book. 

Martin Goldsmith plays himself, as the unseen interviewer, while a vulnerable Bruno Ganz is playing his father Georg Goldsmith. It was Bruno Ganz’ last part before he died in 2019.

If You See My Mother

Thursday, May 6, 7:30 pm - Monday, May 10, 11:59 pm

Max is single, an ophthalmologist, and a real mama's boy. Until she suddenly dies. Max should be devastated, yet he seems to be coping well. Too well. He actually still sees her, talks to her. She is not gone, still here, still close to her beloved baby boy. Max knows she is dead, yet he holds on to this impossible reality. Until he starts sharing his office with Ohiana, a shrink who he slowly falls in love with. Mom is not going to like it.
