IN HEAVEN UNDERGROUND
Sunday, March 17 at 12pm
Long-time Curator and Co-Chair of the MJFF, Walter Elias, selected this film as his favorite pick of the festival!
North of Berlin's noisy city center, surrounded by a jungle of trees and lush foliage, lies the peaceful and secluded 130-year-old Weissensee Jewish Cemetery, the largest Jewish cemetery still in use in Europe. Its one hundred acres hold 115,000 graves and a meticulous archive record. The cemetery has never closed, and was one of the few institutions to remain in Jewish hands during the Nazi regime. Award-winning director Britta Wauer's charming portrait creates a serene experience following a delightful array of characters from around the world: mourners, tourists, a young family residing at the cemetery, a third-generation gravedigger and an ornithologist studying rare birds of prey. Despite being an old cemetery it's teaming with life and stories.
*Directed by Britta Wauer
