WJFF 2019: Back to Berlin

Tuesday, April 30th at 5 PM at the Cineplex Odeon, Devonshire Mall


An epic journey that marries biker-flick and Holocaust documentary. In 2015, the European Maccabi Games (aka the Jewish Olympics) were held in Germany for the first time since WWII at the Waldbühne Stadium, site of Hitler’s infamous 1936 Berlin Olympics.

We follow eleven Israeli motor-bikers carrying the Maccabi torch from Tel Aviv to Berlin, retracing the tracks of early 1930s riders who set out from the British Mandate of Palestine to all corners of Europe spreading the word about the first Maccabi Games.
