Winter Journey - Tuesday, August 11

Denmark/German 2020 | Feature | 130 min.

Directed by Anders Østergaard


This feature film, passing and played as a fictional documentary and released after Bruno Ganz' death, focuses on an intimate family relation and tells the story of the Jüdischer Kulturbund, or the Jewish Cultural League. Supervised by Goebbels and his Propaganda Ministry in 1933, it allowed Jewish artists to perform for Jewish audiences in apartheid-like separation from the "ordinary" Germans – a positive alternative to being banned from performing altogether.


Two of those artists were the young flutist Gunther Goldschmidt and his wife, Rosemarie, who played concerts all around Germany for several years while working in the Kulturbund, before fleeing the country and starting a new life in the US in 1941.
