In 2014 we pre-produced this one-minute teaser to show what we want to do. The final product will be an animated short film of about 10 minutes. Thanks to more than 120 people who supported our crowdfunding campaign we were able to meet in Tel Aviv in April 2014. We had three weeks of intense work and made these first scenes of our future film.

With this big step made we are now looking for fundings, sponsors and production partners to set up a production-budget for "my home".

Film Synopsis

Netta is a young Israeli woman who would like to move abroad - to Germany of all places. Netta's father, the son of Holocaust survivors, is horrified by her decision.
Torn between haunting memories and shadows of the past, caught between collective memories that have been imprinted on them both for years, Netta and her Dad, the representatives of two different generations, will have to face their demons in Berlin and in Israel, and challenge their identities in order to save their once close relationship.
