OMA & BELLA
Dir. Alexa Karolinski (75min, Germany/USA, 2011)
German with English Subtitles
Regina Karolinski (Oma) and Bella Katz have been friends since childhood. They share recipes, an apartment in Berlin and a common past as Holocaust survivors. Remaining in Germany after the war, it is the food they cook—remembered from their shared childhood—that bonds them. Filmmaker Alexa Karolinski, Oma’s granddaughter, creates a loving portrait of two octogenarians: their stories of survival, their lively sense of humor, and their undying fondness for a good Jewish meal.
