Euphoria of Being
When choreographer Reka Szabo reads a memoir by dancer Eva Fahidi, a 93 year old survivor of Auschwitz, who returned to Hungary alone following the murder of 49 family members, Szabo is compelled to choreograph Fahidi’s story. An unforgettable portrait.
When Israeli director Yair Lev’s mother inherits a house from a distant relative, she discovers that her father died ‘twice’ – as Ernst Bechinsky in Palestine and Ernst Bechinsky in Austria. But which was the real one and which the imposter? The director’s search for the answers takes you on a thrilling ride from Zagreb to Tel Aviv.
