Purchase tickets here: http://hannasjourney.brownpapertickets.com/ Ambitious Berliner Hanna decides that if she is going to succeed in business, she will need some volunteer service work on her resumé. She heads to Israel to work with disabled Jews, cynically explaining, if you’re German, “helping Jews always gets you points, and disabled Jews count double.” Itay, the Israeli social worker supervising Hanna’s volunteer work, cracks jokes about German guilt while openly flirting with her. She resists at first, but soon finds herself drawn to him. Probing the effects of the Holocaust’s looming shadow on third generation Israelis and Germans, the film deftly weaves the personal and the political, illustrating how they are inextricably linked.
