Opening Night Film Announced!
Our Opening Night film is a post – war dark comedy Bye Bye Germany.
David Berman and his friends, all Holocaust survivors, have only one purpose: to get to America as soon as possible. For this, they need money. Clever, resourceful, and shady, they are succeeding in their goal when the past comes back to haunt them. Why is the beautiful German-American officer so interested in David? Who are the gangsters that are chasing him? Will the local people catch on to the scams? Will everyone get to America? There are no easy answers. Gorgeous cinematography creates an almost magical post-war setting, and comedy and drama are woven seamlessly to tell this tale of Jewish life in Germany after World War II.
