Le Grand Akshan

Ron Goldman's 2002 Israeli documentary tells the story of his great-grandfather, a Zionist in his youth and later a prosperous cinema owner in Israel (with stops in Havana, Iraq, and Bombay in between). His father perished in 1942 when a refugee ship sank in the Black Sea; the recent discovery of the wreck prompts Goldman to retrace his family's history from Israel back to Hungary, an effort playfully chronicled in this sincere work. In Hebrew with subtitles. 54 min.
