BYE BYE GERMANY
Sam Garbarski | Comedy, War  | 102 min | Germany | 2018 | German with English Subtitles

The year is 1946 and David Bermann and his friends, all Holocaust survivors, are in a displaced persons camp run by American forces. David is orchestrating the sale of linens to Germans, using outlandish stories to earn enough to get himself and his friends to America. This is threatened by investigations into whether David possibly collaborated with the Nazis, who wanted to use his joke and storytelling skills to teach Hitler to be more humorous. As the sales efforts get wilder, the investigation deepens and David tells the story of his time in the camps. Is it the real story or the ultimate sales pitch to escape the past? Just who is conning whom, and what truth really matters? Never trivializing or sidestepping the horrors of the Holocaust, BYE BYE GERMANY still mines it for unexpected veins of humor and insight. Both gut wrenching and upbeat, BYE BYE GERMANY asks: When everything collapses and survival is all, whos to judge if a good con or a good laugh is wrong?

Generously sponsored by Lisa Miller and Bennett Finkelstein
