The Flat

The Flat (2011)

In order to animate and lift the spirit during these uncertain times the Leo Baeck Institute London is once more delighted to invite you to join our LBI Film Club. This online project offers interesting and thought-provoking fiction films linked to the German-Jewish and Israeli experience which we hope you will enjoy.  

 The LBI Film Club’s third offering is:  

The Flat (Israel/Germany, 2011)

The flat on the third floor of a Bauhaus building in Tel Aviv was where Arnon Goldfinger’s grandparents lived since they immigrated to Palestine in the 1930’s. Were it not for the view from the windows, one might have thought that the flat was in Berlin. When his grandmother passed away at the age of 98, the family were called to the flat to clear out what was left. Objects, pictures, letters and documents awaited them, revealing traces of a troubled and unknown past.
