"Shadows From My Past"

As part of the event series "We should never forget" the Austrian Cultural Forum is pleased to present the first official USA screening of "Shadows From My Past" and welcome Gita Kaufman, the director of the film.

"Shadows From My Past" is a video documentary that deals with the mixed emotions of an American, Jewish woman, Gita Kaufman, returning to Vienna where she had to flee as a child in 1940. She searches for the missing parts to her own past, she seeks answers to questions of moral ambiguity, individual as opposed to collective guilt and to what degree today’s generation is responsible for the sins of their fathers and grandfathers.

After the screening of the film Gita Kaufman is going to answer questions from the audience.
