A Face to the Story in the Newspaper, or a Selbstgespräch about Queer Polish Jews by a Queer Polish Jew (Who Lives in Berlin) at a Polish Jewish Festival in an Apartment in Kazimierz in June 2019

Date: June 25, 2019
Time: 12:00 am - 12:00 am
Location: Dietla 29/1

On Rosh Hashanah it is written, and on Yom Kippur it is sealed. How many shall pass on, how many shall come to be? On Erev Yom Kippur, a young woman talks with her great-grandmother about her Jewish family’s past and future, about building a new queer family without betraying her history. She struggles between hiding in her own thoughts and coming out to the world. The piece explores what we carry from generations of family history into our relationships today. A story of queer love and the search for acceptance while dealing with the fear of embracing a life on the margins.

Written and directed by Noemi Berkowitz, a Berlin-based director and actor whose directing work has been seen in Stanford, California and at Berlin’s Maxim Gorki Theater; she is actually half-Jewish and half-Polish (fully queer though).

In Polish and English, with subtitles
