My German Friend
This year’s Latin Jewish film series at the Skirball features three films that focus on European lives transplanted to Argentina.
L.A. premiere! In the city of Buenos Aires, Sulamit, the daughter of Jewish emigrants from Germany, meets her young German neighbor, Friedrich. When Friedrich realizes his father’s SS affiliation, he breaks with his family and joins the radical student movement. After he disappears without a trace, Sulamit’s search for him takes her through the darkest days of Argentina’s dirty war. Written and directed by Jeanine Meerapfel. (Argentina and Germany, 2013, 93 min. Rated PG-13. In Spanish, German, and Hebrew with English subtitles.)
