The Cakemaker (IL/GE 2017)
האופה מברל Der Kuchenmacher
Director: Ofir Raul Grazier
In his highly acclaimed film debut, film director Ofir Raul Graizer delicately explores the connection between desire and shared grief. When the Israeli businessman Oren dies in a car accident, German baker Thomas travels from Berlin to Jerusalem in search of his lover’s widow and the life Oren left behind. As the lines between longing and loneliness during Thomas’ time in Israel blur, Graizer explores the challenges, which the triangular relationship poses to family and faith. As food may be a way cultures can bridge such divides, so too can it be a way to mark separation.
