Israelis in Berlin: Screening of "Anywhere Else" (85 minutes, in German, Hebrew, English and Yiddish, with subtitles) and discussion on the growing Israeli community in Berlin.


"Anywhere Else" is an indie film about an Israeli (Noa, age 33) living in Berlin, who returns to her homeland for a visit. With warmth and humor, director Ester Amrami, herself an Israeli in Berlin, illuminates the meaning behind language, homeland and the need for belonging.ANYWHERE ELSE is a recipient of numerous international awards for artistic achievement, including from the prestigious Berlin and Karlovy Vary International Film Festivals.


There will be a panel discussion and reception following the film. Berlin has become the new "hot spot" for many young Israelis. About 25.000 Israelis have made the German capital their new home. This development has caused mixed responses in Israel and among Jews around the world. Panelists Stefan Buchwald (Director German Information Center USA, German Embassy) and Ilan Sztulman (Head of Public Diplomacy, Israeli Embassy) will discuss this development with Michael Brenner, Seymour and Lillian Abensohn Chair in Israel Studies.


Co-sponsored by the Embassies of Germany and Israel.
