BERLIN -- Israeli filmmaker Tomer Heymann almost never stops shooting. He shoots his mother. He shoots his relatives. And, most of all, he shoots his German boyfriend. Heymann’s latest documentary, “I Shot My Love,” tells the sometimes painful story about how his love affair with his German boyfriend, Andreas Merk, is complicated by the tortured German-Jewish past. The film, which debuted last Saturday, is one of several Israeli offerings at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival, which runs through Feb. 21.
