“So thrilling, astounding, moving and enriching, it is simply impossible not to be gripped by The Flat.” – Sächsische Zeitung
In one of the most talked about Israeli documentaries of the year, director Arnon Goldfinger discovers a long-buried family secret in his German grandmother’s Tel Aviv flat that throws everything he knew about his family into doubt. What starts as an intimate portrait of family history quickly turns into a riveting detective story and a multi-layered exploration of past and present denials. Full of twists and turns, this is an emotional, richly rewarding film about how, for different generations, the truth can mean quite different things.
