I translated the voiceover texts to this feature-length documentary film by Alice Agneskirchner. The film was produced by Gebrueder Beetz (or, as they prefer it written: gebrueder beetz), for whom I work regularly, in co-production with 3sat and RBB. The filmmaker initially got the film off the ground primarily through persistence and a Gerd-Ruge-Stipendium grant; the final product has proven to be rather a success at film festivals and has already been screened on German TV numerous times.
An Apartment in Berlin combines a historic look at the gradual dispossession and eventual deportation of a Jewish family in Berlin prior to WWII with the lives of three young Israelis who embark on a journey of refurnishing the Jewish family's original apartment. The result is an intriguing and at times tragic look into Jewish life, past and present.
