Hanna’s Journey

Directed by: Julia von Heinz
100 Minutes, 2013, Drama; Israel Film Center Festival; Romance

When Hanna moves from Germany to Israel to beef up her resume with community service work, she is confronted with a past she has spent a lifetime denying. Through her job working with individuals with disabilities, she meets brusque social worker Itay, who baits her with Holocaust jokes while openly flirting with her. Between his probing, her new friendship with a German-Jewish Holocaust survivor, and her German roommates, she begins to question her identity, her family history, and her priorities.
