Bruxelles-transit, one of the first modern films to be spoken in Yiddish, recounts the emigration of the director’s parents, Polish Jews who spent ten days traveling through Europe by train, and who never managed to fully integrate into Belgium, the country of their exile after the Holocaust, without papers or knowing the language.
With magnificent photography, it is a semi-surreal testimony and an emotional journey into the isolation of an emigrant family.

Presentation by Tal Hever-Chybowski (Directeur de la Maison de la culture yiddish – Bibliothèque Medem) on Tuesday 19.
