Brussels-Transit

Belgian filmmaker Samy Szlingerbaum felt that the only way he could accurately relate his family’s search for refuge was through his mother-tongue. His own mother narrates in Yiddish the story of how the Szlingerbaum family, leaving Poland, makes its way across Europe in 1947. Rather than just reconstructing real events, the filmmaker recounts the sometimes funny sometimes painful adventures of a family learning to cope with a new environment. A most fascinating study of postwar European Jewry in search of a new identity. 88 min., Belgium

"Like Josh Waletzky’s Image Before My Eyes, the film arises from the powerful drive of children to address the suffering of their parents’ lives."—Village Voice
