Dealing with themes of guilt, Jewish identity, the father/son dynamic, and the responsibilities of the Second Generation.

Hailed as a “Masterpiece” by European critics, “Phenomenal” by The Hollywood Insider, and “Unforgettable” by The Forward, Winter Journey is a fascinating exploration of a little-known aspect of musical life in Nazi
Germany. Dealing with themes of guilt, Jewish identity, the father/son dynamic, and the responsibilities of the Second Generation, Winter Journey is moving proof of William Faulkner’s observation that “the past is never dead; it isn’t even past.” Based on “The Inextinguishable Symphony” by Martin Goldsmith and starring Bruno Ganz in his last film appearance.  Please join us for this engaging film. You won't want to miss it.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, Montgomery County.

Author, film interviewer, and former NPR radio host, Martin Goldsmith will be available for questions after the film.
