Menachem and Fred Film Night

This event has passed

This is the story of two brothers who for decades feared to meet.

Attempting to repress their past and build new lives, the brothers buried dark secrets in their hearts. Only when rare letters were found, letters from their parents who were in a concentration camp at the time, to the orphanage where the brothers hid during the second world war, did Menachem and Fred start to re-establish contact and come to terms with their past.

Menachem and Fred live in two extremes of Jewish identity. Fred is an American aerospace engineer. His children are married to Christians. Menachem is religious, holds a doctorate in education and lives in Jerusalem. His children live in West Bank settlements.

The film accompanies Menachem and Fred on an emotionally charged journey that examines their past and probes their psyches.

The film raises existential questions pertaining to fate, survival, identity, life choices and their influence on the future generations.
