Inheritance

Australia, 1999 (MIFF 1999, Fiction)

Director: Philip Joseph

Reuben, an Jewish-Australian child, learns about the Holocaust—but he takes it on board in a way his parents didn't quile expect. A well-crafted short, which provides some interesting juxtapositions, inversions and images along the way, all with help from solid performances.
