Available online from 21. July 20:15h

Whether it be in an abandoned apartment building in the war-torn Syrian city of Raqqa, or tracing the history of a filmmaker’s family members who endured the horrors of the Schoah, the film block ‘Searchlight’ confronts us with the aftermath of war, across generations, in an intimate and touching way.

A Letter from Raqqa

An essay on war, loss, and what remains – silent images of deserted, war-torn Raqqa impressively remind us of how valuable our everyday life is, and how it hurts when it’s gone.

Sharon is a filmmaker and is a third generation survivor of the shoah. Life as a Jewish woman in Germany doesn’t only impose inner conflicts on her. Exploring her German-Jewish identity demands confrontation in her circle of friends, and dealing with family and transgenerational traumas within the context of German culture of remembrance.
