Abraham Bursztein, an 88-year old Jewish tailor, leaves Buenos Aires for Poland to find the man who saved him from a certain death after surviving Auschwitz. Escaping from his family who wanted to put him in a nursing home, Abraham attempts to fulfill his promise of returning one day to tell his friend all about the life he had thanks to his courage. Winner of the Audience Award at the Miami Film Festival, Solarz’s charming road movie delivers an uplifting message about life, family, and the kindness of strangers. In Spanish with English subtitles.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
