WINTERNÄHE

„Who am I?“ A young woman’s search for her own life, between Germany’s Hipster capital, the conflict in Israel and an East-German childhood.

Lola grew up in East-Berlin, raised by her German-Jewish grandmother Hannah, who survived the Holocaust. Lola is furious. Furious with the new anti-Semitism around her; with her father who has been hiding in the Australian jungle for the past ten years; furious with the fact that she doesn’t know where she belongs anymore. When Lola falls in love with Shlomo she follows him to Tel Aviv, where her grandfather lives, hoping to find some answers. But shortly after her arrival the Israeli army beings Operation Protective Edge. Lola spends weeks of intense passion and love but also of fear and sadness. When her grandfather dies and her relationship with Shlomo becomes too conflicted, she takes off to Thailand, hoping to find peace of mind and to reconnect with her complicated father. 

 

“Winternähe” takes us on an emotional journey, sometimes tragic, sometimes funny, following Lola on her quest for identity and her place in the world.
