Shalom ItaliaThree Italian Jewish brothers set off on a journey through Tuscany in search of a cave in which they hid as children to escape the Nazis. Their quest, full of humor, food and Tuscan landscapes, straddles the boundary between history and myth, the result of which is a profound portrait of memory and history.

Israel, Germany, 2016, 70 mins., directed by Tamar Tal Anati, Italian and Hebrew with English subtitles


SHORT | Home Movie Home Movie
A story of immigration, of dislocation and of secrets told through home movies found unseen for over 50 years, Home Movie covers life in Czechoslovakia in the 30's all the way to Cardiff in the 60s. Hints of that which goes unspoken snatches of tales of those left behind, of silence about the past, of absences unexplained, of non-existent family members begin to fill in around the edges as the intriguing juxtaposition of happy images and an increasingly uneasy undercurrent lead to a moving conclusion.

UK, Czech Republic, France, 2013, 18 mins., directed by Caroline Pick, English
