Caging Skies
Johannes, a zealous member of the Vienna Hitler Youth, discovers a fateful secret – his family is hiding a young Jewish woman, Elsa, in their home. Her life in his hands, Johannes and Elsa embark on a gripping journey of obsession and love that blurs the lines between the captive and the free, the victorious and the defeated, as the horrors of the war unfold around them and each must find a way to survive. A hauntingly powerful story that lays bare the darkest corners of the human soul. What happens when children innocently embrace an ideological lie, when parents become afraid of their own children, when the lie takes on a life of its own?
Nuclear Family
Set in green New Zealand on the eve of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, following a colourful bunch of Jewish immigrants from the Soviet Union and Venezuela as they swing between the shocks and delights of their new lives. If only Abbi’s in-laws could get out of the Soviet Union and be reunited with their family, she just might stop longing for her own in Venezuela. And if shrewd old Babushka could get get her granddaughter Zina to sort out her own life instead of trying to manipulate everyone elses’, she would fulfil a promise she once made. Longing to belong in this upside down word of Kiwis, they struggle with the realisation that although the grass is definitely greener on the free side, the fence is still there, and their loved ones are on the other side. Are freedom and control over one’s destiny only illusions?
