WHEN DAY BREAKS
Dir. Goran Paskaljević (90min, Serbia, 2012)
Serbian with English Subtitles
Narrative
East Coast Premiere


In the latest from Serbian master Goran Paskaljević, recently retired Misha Brankov is entrusted with a battered box excavated from the site of a former Nazi death camp. Scanning the documents inside, Brankov makes a jarring discovery: his real name is not Brankov, but Weiss.

The son of Jewish musician Isaac Weiss, the infant Misha was entrusted to family friends before the Weisses were sent to the camp. Digging deeper, while also seeking to fulfill his father’s musical legacy, Misha struggles through a collective national amnesia to uncover the truth about his past.
