American radio host Martin Goldsmith never knew what happened to his parents before they escaped from Germany in 1941. Over a weekend, he confronts his father, and we are brought back to the complex and confusing 1930s. His parents, talented musicians, are only able to perform as members of the newly created Jüdischer Kulturbund, a propaganda initiative under the Reich Chamber of Culture. Winter Journey is based on Goldsmith’s book The Inextinguishable Symphony. Fusing documentary and dramatic conventions, the film masterfully recreates the conversations Goldsmith had with his father (Bruno Ganz in his final role) as preparation for the book.
