10 September 2017: Paper Bridge


Paper Bridge
Ruth Beckermann
1987 | 95 min | Colour | DCP

Paper Bridge is a journey through Ruth Beckermann's own family's history and at the same time the story of Central Europe's Jews and of a region. It takes her from Vienna, where her grandmother survived the war and the Nazis in hiding and to which her mother returned from Israel, to the landscapes of her father's childhood: the Bukowina, once part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Part of our season on Ruth Beckermann, curated and introduced by Colm McAuliffe.
