clientuploads/FilmFest/FilmFest2013/MyAustralia.jpgIn a poor neighborhood in 1960s Lodz, Poland, 10-year-old Tadek and his brother are members of an anti-Semitic gang. After vandalizing a Jewish school, they are arrested and their mother, a Holocaust survivor, has no choice but to reveal that though raised as Catholics, they are in fact Jews. Telling the younger boy they are going to Australia, the land of his fantasies, the family boards a ship to Israel. This tender and humorous drama is based on the filmmaker’s own immigrant experience.
