Austin Jewish Film Festival 2014
5774 Austin Jewish Film Festival
Celebrates its 12th year
During our Austin Jewish Film Festival in April this year, we had a successful screening of this film “THE GERMAN DOCTOR”. Here is another opportunity to see it if you haven’t seen it or you want to see it again. Don’t MISS it!
The film is being theatrical release and will be in Austin on Friday, May 16th at the Arbor Cinemas at Great Hills.
Patagonia, 1960. A German doctor (Alex Brendemühl) meets an Argentinean family and follows them on a long desert road to a small town where the family will be starting a new life. Eva (Natalia Oreiro), Enzo (Diego Peretti) and their three children welcome the doctor into their home and entrust their young daughter, Lilith (Florencia Bado), to his care, not knowing that they are harboring one of the most dangerous criminals in the world. At the same time, Israeli agents are desperately looking to bring THE GERMAN DOCTOR to justice.
Based on filmmaker Lucía Puenzo’s (XXY) fifth novel, the story follows Josef Mengele, the “Angel of Death,” a German SS officer and a physician at the Auschwitz concentration camp, in the years he spent “hiding”, along with many other Nazi’s, in South America following his escape from Germany. Mengele was considered to be one of WWII’s most heinous Nazi war criminals.
