Hanna’s Journey - Jewish Film Festival 2014 (NCJF)

May 18, 2014 at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
290 Harvard Street
Brookline, MA

hannahs journeyPlease Join Boston 3G for the encore screening of the NCJF Festival’s “Hanna’s Journey”
(Hannas Reise)
NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE

Hoping to advance her career, Hanna (Karoline Schuch) a beautiful but brusque young German, takes a volunteer job in Israel working with disabled youths and Holocaust survivors. There, she meets Itay (Doron Amit), a charming Israeli teacher who gives her a run for her money, even joking with her about the Holocaust—a topic she considers irrelevant to her life. Hanna’s priorities realign as she warms to Itay and learns more about her own family history.

“Rich in characterization and moral questions, and makes a clear visual contrast between the hot chaotic bustle of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem (beautifully filmed by Daniela Knapp) and the wintry symmetry of Berlin…. A coming-together of cultures is what a film festival is all about, and when you get it in one movie—and it opens your mind—you know your time in the cinema is well-spent.” –Montreal Gazette

Director: Julia von Heinz | Germany/Israel | 2013 | 100m | German & Hebrew w/ Eng. subtitles

CO-PRESENTED BY: Goethe-Institut Boston

SPONSORS: Center for German & European Studies at Brandeis University; Israel Campus Roundtable; Facing History and Ourselves

Past Events

  • Mezuzot & Challah Covers for Survivors

    Tania

    On August 14th members of Boston 3G gathered to decorate Mezuzot and Challah covers for Holocaust Survivors.  Together we painted and decorated over 100 pieces of beautiful Judaica for the survivors.

    On Sunday August 18th, these gifts were presented to local Survivors at their semi-annual Cafe Europa gathering.  They were thrilled and tremendously appreciative of the gesture.  A huge thanks to all of the volunteer artists who participated in this event!

    This event was in partnership with CJP’s ‘Summer of Service’ community service program.
