Netta, a young Israeli woman wishes to immigrate to Berlin. Her father, the son of
Holocaust survivors, is horrified by her decision to live in the land that killed her
ancestors. He refuses to speak to her again if she leaves. Based on Daniella Koffler’s
personal story, “Compartments” is the first German-Israeli animation co-production that
wishes to explore collective memories of the Holocaust in the third generation, and how
they shape both sides in ways we cannot predict.
