Short Film Profile

Auschwitz on my mind

Roy, a young Israeli teenager, visits Poland on a school trip between death camps and memorials. However, for Roy, Holocaust remembrance is not the only purpose of the Journey; Roy fancies a girl from his class called Vered.

Film notes

Torn between his society’s obsession with its past and his friends’ obsession with sex, Roy’s attempts to win Vered’s affection create an ambiguous story constantly shifting from the tragic to the entertaining.
