“A tender, beautiful and loving film, which subtly recalls the crucial part the German Jews once had within Berlin culture.”
During the 1920s, Café Nagler was the hottest place in Berlin. Mor, the film's director embarks on a journey to find out what's left of her family's legendary café. Her grandmother follows the filming with great anticipation. When Mor discovers the true story behind the café, she is unable to break her grandmother's heart and looks for a creative solution. Café Nagler is a film about memory, about our need for family myths and about our longing for a different past. English and Hebrew with English Subtitles
The Israeli Film Series is a collaboration between Grail Moviehouse and the Asheville Jewish Community Center. This series is designed to allow us to use film as our window into the minds and culture of Israel. The 2nd Sunday of each month, a new Israeli film will be presented with a discussion to follow each film. The films have been selected to provide varying degrees and angles of perspective and insight. We invite you to come explore with us.
