The Last Transfer

Decades after the Holocaust, many survivors still bear vivid memories of the trauma they experienced. This film follows the lives of a group of survivors who have stayed long-term in the Psycho-Geriatric Ward of the Abarbanel Mental Health Center. G. is like a robot, unable to stop working; H. continues to clean the bathrooms and A. keeps looking for her dead son as if the war was not over. What caused these people to break down? Why couldn’t they rebuild their lives? Has madness become their only refuge? Is their stay in the hospital the direct result of their illness, or does it perhaps reflect the failure of Israeli society to care for these silent victims who remain hidden from the public eye?

Festivals and Awards:

Special Mention at the Jerusalem International Film Festival, 1997;  Jewish Film Festival, Toronto, 1998; Berlin International Film Festival, 1998; Leipzig International Film Festival, 1998; Uruguay International Film Festival, 1999
