The Flat (Arnon Goldfinger)
The flat on the third floor of a Bauhaus building in Tel Aviv was where my grandparents lived since they immigrated to Palestine in the 1930's. Were it not for the view from the windows, one might have thought that the flat was in Berlin. When my grandmother passed away at the age of 98 we were called to the flat to clear out what was left. Objects, pictures, letters and documents awaited us, revealing traces of a troubled and unknown past.
The film which begins with the emptying out of a flat develops into a riveting adventure, involving unexpected national interests, a friendship that crosses enemy lines, and deeply repressed...


The film is mostly in Hebrew with English subtitles. To see a trailer of this film, click here.

Popcorn and hot wine will be served during the screening.

Looking forward seeing you all,

Best Regards,

IsCham Team
