BACK TO BER­LIN

OUT 23 NOVEM­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen -

Cather­ine Lurie’s de­but doc fol­lows a group of Jewish bik­ers as they travel from Tel Aviv to Ber­lin for the 2015 Mac­cabi Games. Shar­ing fam­ily ac­counts of sur­vival dur­ing the Holo­caust, the bik­ers build a ta­pes­try of sto­ries as they seek to con­nect with the ex­pe­ri­ences of their fore­bears. De­spite oc­ca­sion­ally melo­dra­matic nar­ra­tion from Ja­son Isaacs, it’s an af­fect­ing work with pow­er­ful ar­chive footage. Tim Cole­man
