Digital presentation - The Flat is the fascinating and award-winning documentary on the discoveries filmmaker Arnon Goldfinger makes about his maternal grandparents while cleaning out their Tel Aviv apartment.

“The flat on the third floor of a Bauhaus building in Tel Aviv was where my grandparents lived since they immigrated to Palestine in the 1930's. Were it not for the view from the windows, one might have thought that the flat was in Berlin. When my grandmother passed away at the age of 98 we were called to the flat to clear out what was left. Objects, pictures, letters and documents awaited us, revealing traces of a troubled and unknown past. The film which begins with the emptying out of a flat develops into a riveting adventure, involving unexpected national interests, a friendship that crosses enemy lines, and deeply repressed family emotions. And even reveals some secrets that should have probably remained untold.” – Arnon Goldfinger

This film has received the Israeli Academy Award ("Ofir") for Best Documentary; the Jerusalem Film Festival Award for Best Documentary Director; Best Editing Award, Tribeca International Film Festival 2012; and the David A. Stein Memorial Award for Best Documentary, Toronto Jewish Film Festival 2012, among others.
