Ruth Beckermann

The filmmaker stands for political cinema that poses questions about individual and collective identity.

Ruth Beckermann has been a chronicler of Jewish life in Austria and the world for more than 40 years, putting her documentary finger into the still festering wound of anti-Semitism.

She conveys her always personal view of things as a narrator in essayistic style, and off-camera commentator. The presence of her unmistakable, Viennese-tinged voice, which sometimes slips into the poetic, sometimes tells of her own childhood memories and juxtaposes them with images, creates an additional dimension that is characteristic for Beckermann.
