The Ashkenazim

The Ashkenazim is a funny-sad film about young Israelis who are in search of their Ashkenazi roots. The film follows the changes in the lives of these young people as they reconnect to their Ashkenazi heritage. What are they longing for, why are they filled with shame and guilt, why do they feel rejected, and will they ever be able to bring some of their forefathers’ lost Ashkenazi culture to the Middle East?
