Today, Europe’s fastest growing Jewish population is in Berlin. Germany is considered one of the most democratic societies in the world, assuming the position of moral leader in Europe as it embraces hundreds of thousands of refugees. None of these developments could have been imagined in 1945. Through personal stories Germans & Jews explores the country’s transformation from silence about the Holocaust to facing it head on. Unexpectedly, a nuanced story of reconciliation emerges. What began as a private conversation between the two filmmakers and friends, Tal Recanati (Jewish) and Janina Quint (non-Jewish German), grew into a cultural exchange among many.

Berlin: (In)flux
A film & lecture series exploring immigrant and refugee experiences in Berlin.

Berlin: In(flux) seeks to address the recent, unabashed rise of racism and xenophobia in the US and Europe. Designed in tandem with the San Francisco Art Institute’s faculty-led travel course Das Berlin-Projekt, led by Lasse Scherffig (Assistant Professor, Art & Technology) in Spring 2017, Berlin: In(flux) presents the opportunity to engage in a timely and important exchange on asylum-seeking, migration and diaspora using Berlin as a case study.
