Trailer

Synopsis

To be Jewish in Berlin is to discover yourself eating a sandwich in what was once Hitler's office, to pass the headquarters of the SS on your way to your dentist appointment. Nirit Ben Joseph, an Israeli who has lived in Berlin for 26 years, is a "Holocaust tour guide" in the city. Her profession offers regular opportunity to consider what it means to be a Jew in Germany today. The Tour Guide raises questions questions about immigration, identity and how we address the past.

Director

Amos Geva was born in Israel, but spent his childhood years in Leeds, England. This move has pushed Geva to explore his own intercultural identity and what it means in today's world. He has also been chosen for the exclusive French/German producer’s network, called the Atelier Ludwigsburg-Paris with the La Femis school, NFTS & Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. This summer Geva is producing a new narrative short in Germany that will already be broadcasted by the end of 2015.
