"I don't know exactly why I traveled east this winter," filmmaker Ruth Beckermann says of her documentary journey through Eastern Europe. "I think I was just curious to know whether there was still any resemblance to the stories I grew up with."
Beckermann's parents met in Vienna after the Holocaust; her father was a war refugee from Romania and her mother was a native of Vienna who settled in Palestine in 1938. Tracing the migratory paths of her family before WWII, Beckermann returns to the European Jewish communities which inspired her childhood stories: the small towns around Theresienstadt, the remaining Jewish communities of Bucovnia, Romania, and Vienna.
