NYJFF Live Talk: Winter Journey
Join Winter Journey director Anders Østergaard and author Martin Goldsmith for a live talk to discuss their Centerpiece selection of the 2021 New York Jewish Film Festival.

Classical music radio host Martin Goldsmith wrote the book The Inextinguishable Symphony about his musician parents, who fled Nazi Germany. Before they left, however, they were able to play their instruments in a small orchestra that was set up by the Third Reich as a propaganda measure. Ironically, this gave them a form of shelter for a time. Co-directed by Anders Østergaard and Erzsébet Rácz, the film features veteran actor Bruno Ganz in his last role as Goldsmith’s father, George, who is interviewed in the film by his son (played by Martin himself). This moving story, told with layered visuals and sounds, deftly combines history and drama. At one point in the film, as George mimics the Nazi official who stamped his visa, Ganz references his own performance as Hitler in 2004’s Downfall.
