Drama

The Greenbaums are a seemingly normal family: the father, retired after 27 years in the Israeli army; the mother, a high school teacher; the daughter, a rebellious teenager whose anti-military protests put her in dangerous territory; and the son, seemingly a normal teenage boy until a crisis hits.

Slowly, their lives begin to unravel out of frustration, mid-life crises, teenage angst, and disillusionment. “We’re good people, aren’t we?” the father inquires. But are they?

Based on the wartime diaries of Holocaust survivor Dr. Baruch Milch, his daughters Sephi and Nana, the former a classical composer and the latter an investigative journalist, attempt to investigate the mystery of their father’s wartime experiences in Poland.

Sephi’s life intersects with that of German composer and conductor Thomas Zielinski, who also comes from a family of unrevealed secrets and whose mother believes Dr. Milch is a murderer. Haunting and suspenseful, Past Life is directed by Avi Nesher (The Wonders, HJFF 2014).
