Since the cafém in February didn‘t really take place as planned, we‘re showing the then already advertised movie at the 18th cafém on 15/03/15.
The movie is an intimate glimpse into the world of two jewish friends who live together in Berlin. Having survived the Holocaust and then stayed in Germany after the war, it is the food they cook together that they remember their childhoods, maintain a bond to each other and answer questions of heritage, memory and identity. As the film follows them through their daily lives, a portrait emerges of two women with a light sense of humor, vivid stories, and a deep fondness for good food. Created by Oma’s granddaughter Alexa, the film captures their ongoing struggle to retain a part of their past while remaining very much engaged in the present.
We want to warn in advance, that the movie has some fleshy scenes that might be too much for some people. But don’t be afraid, there wont be meat in the cafèm, instead we will have a delicious vegan buffet as always. You are welcome to bring some good stuff.
We‘re looking forward to spending a relaxed afternoon watching this movie with you.
There will also be a discussion about ‚religion and feminism‘ from 3pm. At this first meeting, we especially want to talk about fundamentalism and anti-feminism. A short talk has been prepared and we warmly invite you to join the discussion.
