The Escape

Directed by: Meni Elias
74 Minutes, 2013

In this road movie a group of Israeli teenagers from different backgrounds set out on a personal and fascinating adventure following the original “Bricha Movement”, which was set up to help Jews escape post-war Europe and get to Israel. Using today’s Europe as the backdrop, and throughout the different stops on the routes of the Bricha, the teenagers meet with survivors, witnesses and local youth to hear their personal extraordinary experiences. The journey they take, both physically and emotionally is complex, amusing, eye-opening, and very important to an understanding of themselves and of their history.
