Shalom Italia

Shalom Italia

“Shalom Italia is documentary at its best.” — Brightest Young Things

 

Three brothers, child survivors of the Holocaust, go in search of a cave in the Tuscan countryside where their family hid 70 years earlier during World War Two. But more than a search to find a geographical location, the brothers are on their way to locate the common ground of memory, the nexus where the conflicting versions of their stories can come to rest. Lively, outspoken, and polar opposites in their personalities and professional lives, the men’s complex but loving relationships come to light, while questions arise about the nature of memory.

Director Tamar Tal Anati (Life in Stills, JIFF14) constructs a compelling and insightful documentary that prompts a reflection on the veracity of memory and shared experience, and considers the subjective nature of personal history.
