PJFF Docs & Dialogue: Six Million And One

January 21, 2013 7:30 PM

PHILADELPHIA PREMIERE - SIX MILLION AND ONE

Director: David Fisher

Israel, Austria, Germany, USA, 2011, 93 minutes

In Hebrew, German, and English w/ English subtitles
 

When four siblings discover their late father’s memoir, they uncover a past defined by the Holocaust and marred by sacrifice, struggle, and guilt. When confronted by such a haunting legacy, what should they do? Three siblings walk away, appalled by the idea of dabbling with demons from their past. Yet director David Fisher refuses to afford his brothers and sister the privilege of complacency. Instead, he faces his father’s legacy head-on, interviewing American soldiers, Holocaust tour and museum curators, European citizens, and his own family. Dissatisfied until he has retraced every word of his father’s memoir, he takes his strong-willed siblings on a trip of a lifetime in hopes of bringing his family back together after tragedy. Six Million and One documents the Fisher family’s journey towards seeking and finding meaning in the history that shaped their existence.
 

Guest speaker: Bea Hollander-Goldfein, PhD, Director of Transcending Trauma Project, The Council for Relationships
