A Musical Documentary follows a group of young German and Israeli musicians & actors, working on a joined performance in German and Hebrew. The play is based on the memories of Manka Alter, a Holocaust survivor who was a lead singer in the Cabaret of Ghetto Terezin (Theresienstadt). Through Manka’s memories, performed on stage by the young generation, the film raises philosophical questions on truth and reconciliation. The rehearsals and the staging of the cabaret are intertwined with the reenacting of the scenes from the play on the streets of Schwerin and Berlin.
