A special screening of “The Flat” will take place at the Tucson Jewish Community Center on Sunday, March 30 at 3 p.m.
The documentary, in Hebrew/German/English with subtitles, was released in September 2011 in Israel, where it played continuously for 13 months.
At age 98, director Arnon Goldfinger’s grandmother passed away, leaving him the task of clearing out the Tel Aviv flat that she and her husband shared for decades since immigrating from Nazi Germany. Goldfinger soon discovers nothing less than the troubling and taboo story of three generations of Germans — both Jewish and non-Jewish — as he tries to piece together the puzzle of their lives in the aftermath of the terrible events of World War II.
The screening is cosponsored by the Tucson International Jewish Film Festival and the Holocaust Education and Commemoration Project, a joint program of the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona and the Holocaust History Center at the Jewish History Museum.
The cost of the screening is $5. For more information, contact Jane Scott at 577-9393 ext. 11, or [email protected], or call the JCC at 299-3000.
