Don't Touch My Holocaust

Israeli film director Asher TIalim, originally from Tangier, Morocco, poses a question to all of us, even those apparently not directly affected: What do we - the generation after - have to do with the Holocaust? Tlalim has created a profound and complex film, a mirror reflecting us in depth. Focusing on the Akko Theater Center's award-winning performance, ARBEIT MACHT FREI, also featured in the German documentary, BALAGAN (see listing), he documents the actors as well as the audiences over a three-year period, scrutinizing their souls. Tlalim travels with the Israeli actors to Morocco, to the Czech Republic and finally to Germany, where they compare one society that chooses to remember with one that chooses to forget. Winner, Best Documentary, 1994 Israeli Oscars; 1995 Berlin Film Festival.
