209 Rue Saint-maur, Paris 10éme: The Neighbours

Ruth Zylberman
103 min

The residential building at 209 rue Saint-Maur, Paris, 10ème is still standing, elegant and imposing as it has always been. Many of those who used to live here and their descendants, however, have dispersed all over the world ever since the end of the war, resettling in Melbourne, New York and Tel Aviv, among other places. In this captivating documentary, filmmaker Ruth Zylberman, who chose the site randomly, retraces the footsteps of the Jewish women, men and children for whom the building was once home, pondering over the intricate relationship between place, community and identity.
