This cinematic adaptation of the award-winning play, “Arbeit Macht Frei”, accompanies the Acre Theater Group as it probes the innermost recesses of the Israeli psyche in the generation after the Holocaust.
The film takes the viewer along the most difficult collective journey faced by Israeli society – the Holocaust – with an impact so sweeping and so real, it can truly be said that all of us – Moroccans, Iraqis, Germans, and even Khaled Abu-Ali, the Palestinian protagonist – are survivors of the Holocaust.
