GER24 Treasure

Australian premiere

Following the fall of the Iron Curtain and the dissolution of Soviet control of Poland in the early 1990s, New York-based music journalist Ruth (Lena Dunham, Girls) and her Polish father Edek (Stephen Fry, QI), a charmingly stubborn Holocaust survivor, set out on a tour of his homeland.

Visiting Edek’s childhood haunts, Ruth hopes to make sense of her family’s traumatic past. The journey takes them from Warsaw to Łódź, her father’s hometown, to Krakow and the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.

Having left Poland and the past behind, Edek is reluctant to engage with Ruth’s quest and his own trauma. So, he follows his own amusing agenda, undermining their trip with his unpredictable and eccentric demeanor, until the two visit the family’s former home and meet the current occupants.

Directed and co-written by Julia von Heinz, loosely based on Australian Lily Brett’s award-winning novel Too Many Men, this touching and resonant drama is the third part of von Heinz’s Aftermath trilogy which deals with the repercussions of the Holocaust in Germany and around the world.

“Stephen Fry and Lena Dunham are the charismatic double act you never knew you needed in this low-key tearjerker about repressed grief and family tensions.” - The Times
