Documentary filmmaker Dan Edelstyn grew up in Northern Ireland only vaguely aware of his ancestry, but the discovery of his grandmother’s memoir inspires a quest to trace and reconnect with his Jewish Ukrainian roots. Edelstyn balances his personal journey with the story of his grandmother, giving voice to a highly educated cosmopolitan Jew from a merchant family fully integrated with the aristocracy of the day. The film’s parallel narratives become a fascinating and layered exploration of a common theme: the desire for return and the rediscovery of heritage.

Film preceded by Shards (Brokhshtiker).

Co-director Daniel Edelstyn in person at both screenings!
