Dir. Ester Amrami (85min, Germany/Israel, 2014)
German, English, Hebrew and Yiddish with English Subtitles
Noa, an Israeli student living in Germany with her boyfriend Jörg, becomes unhinged upon receiving disappointing news about her graduate thesis project – creating a dictionary of untranslatable words.
When Jörg goes out of town for a few days, Noa takes the opportunity to spontaneously fly back to Israel — home, sunshine, family and her native tongue. Noa is determined this trip will do her good! Her lovable but dysfunctional family can’t keep old conflicts from arising, however, and soon her homeland begins to feel just like the Berlin she sought to escape. And then Jörg suddenly turns up at the most inopportune time – Memorial Day.
