Directed by Anders Østergaard
This documentary, which plays like a feature film, is the final role for renowned actor, Bruno Ganz, before his death. WINTER JOURNEY focuses on the true story of Martin Goldsmith's search for his identity. This intimate, family-relations-centric film tells the story of the Jüdischer Kulturbund, or the Jewish Cultural League (supervised by Goebbels and his Propaganda Ministry in 1933) which 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.
Join us on August 13th for an exciting ZOOM Talk-Back with Martin Goldsmith, author of the book on which the film is based. Goldsmith (whose book is available on Amazon via the link below) will be signing labels for his book, available upon request.
"A Fascinating Insight into a Virtually Unknown Chapter of Nazi Rule in Germany, Made all the More Engaging through a Son's Discovery of His Own Remarkable Parents."
