In Heaven, Underground’s Movie Poster

Jewish Film Festival

In Heaven, Underground

This Audience Award winner at the Berlin Film Festival and Honorable Mention at the Jerusalem Film Festival is an enchanting journey into history that celebrates life and the immortality of memories.  North of Berlin’s noisy city center, surrounded by a jungle of trees and lush foliage, lies the peaceful and secluded Weissensee Jewish Cemetery, the oldest Jewish cemetery still in use in Europe.  Its 100 acres hold 115,000 graves and a meticulous archive record.  It has never closed, and was one of the few institutions to remain in Jewish hands during the Nazi regime.  This surprising portrait creates a serene experience as it follows a delightful array of locals and visitors from around the world: mourners, tourists, a young family residing at the cemetery, a third-generation gravedigger, and an ornithologist studying rare birds of prey.

Germany, 2011, In German with English subtitles, 90 min, Directed by Britta Wauer
