Een Sjtetl in de Cariben - A Shtetl in the Caribbean

Documentary, 2014, 99 min.

Release date: 24 Oktober 2014 (Netherlands). Mark and Tsale, children of Eastern European Jews that fled to Curacao, travel back to the home countries of their ancestors. In a documentary road-movie across Curacao, the United States, Belarus, Ukraine and Israel, the childhood friends are reminded of the sacrifices their parents had to make to provide their family with a better future. The story is revealed in a journey that takes them from the desolate wastelands of Eastern Europe to the exotic Caribbean, a contrast metaphoric for the history of Mark and Tsale’s ancestors.
