NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE – Family secrets and high drama unspool in this stirring story of love and betrayal, brotherhood and belonging. Izak was born to Aida inside the Bergen-Belsen DP camp in 1945 and sent for adoption in Israel. Details about Aida’s enigmatic choices, the true identity of Izak’s father, and an unknown brother slowly emerge in this personal investigative film. Timely questions of identity, resilience, and the plight of refugees are brought to life in this compassionate documentary that also opens a window onto the displaced persons camps, where young people who survived death grabbed hold of life and love. Winner, Best Film DocAviv Film Festival; Best Documentary Atlanta & Miami Jewish Film Festivals. “Powerful.” –Time Magazine
