2012 Alumni

Oma & Bella is an intimate glimpse into the world of Regina and Bella, two octogenarian friends who live together in Berlin. Their memories of the Holocaust are never distant as they lovingly prepare the same sumptuous meals they ate as children and converse about questions of heritage, memory and identity. As the film follows them through their daily lives, a portrait emerges of two women with a close bond, a light sense of humor, vivid stories, and a deep fondness for Eastern European cooking.
